I'm also planning to paint a pink rose I persuaded to grow a few years ago. It did not survive the winter, unfortunately. It's the second painting of this flower. The first one is somewhere in Delaware, U.S.A.

In the old days I also made zooms to show details. I happen not to have deleted this one, so here it is. Interesting how small bits of a figurative painting assume abstract qualities. But really, everything we paint is abstracted e.g. from 3 dimensional to 2, and really making out own decisions about what is needed in the painting (artisic license). This does not apply to hyper-realistic paintings, but hyper-realism is not my target.
