Thorns by Sarrah Wilkinson - This one is a digital painting featuring a coiled turquoise dragon offering a single red rose.

"You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses." -Tom Wilson

There are dozens of sayings about roses and their thorns. Love can be tender; love can be heartbreaking, playful or serious, dark as night, bright as sunrise, and everything in between.

Wings furled and tail splayed in a rather curious pattern, this rather thorny dragon offers a lovely red rose. Truth be told, he's a bit shy about it - a romantic soul is too often seen as a weakness among his kind, just as it is among our own. A great and prickly beast he may be, a terror of claw and flame to those he calls enemy, yet he too can be gentle, and his offer is sincere.
