The Rose


This is an ACEO, 3.5 x 2.5 inches.  Over the past day or so, I've been experimenting with Prismacolor pencils on black art paper.  This is the last of four experimental ACEOs.  I love roses--I especially love the way this one turned out!   I thought this Rose would be perfect for Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!

It is indeed gorgeous! I love the way the striped background both sets off and compliments the softness of the flower ... Happy Hearts Day!

I love the colours, and the mysterious or "enchanted" feel of that rose - much more than just a set of pretty petals.

Hi, Beth, this is Al from Al's Photography Blog, and I love this rose (and it's a good reminder to pick up some roses for my wife). I'm always impressed with real art like this, it takes a special talent to take a blank piece of paper and turn it into something beautiful. I hope that the year will start looking better for you after a rough start.

You asked if you could use my photos on FAT, and I'd be honored if you did this. Thank you for asking.
