Pink Rose Impression

Pink Rose Impression Artwork

Pink Rose Impression is my last rose artwork of 2009. It was from a reference photo I had taken in the spring so it really feels like I'm covering the year with this artwork.

It is a very beautiful pink rose flower in a water glass. Simple, charming, and elegant. A rose flower that is a beautiful memory with a touch of sepia to soften the pink and give it a romantic feel of times gone by. Nostalgia in pink. Available as a fine art print.

I want to also remind you that almost all my art is also available as great art gifts, cards, and stamps at Zazzle.

Mandarin Orange 1 - Mandarina 1

Mandarin oranges, mandarinas, are my favorite early winter fruit. They make me think of Christmas, and I buy many kilograms of them every year while they are fresh and in season. The only problem is that eating them is a little messier because of the seeds.

I love their tart flavor. Each juicy piece of this fruit should be cherished. In Mandarina 1, I'm celebrating its general form and beauty. Mandarins are unique and compelling. I love the perfume of the fruit as it is peeled too. It is so intoxicating.
