Yep, Yellow. A whole lot of it! On cards. Stay tuned … I’ve yet to get this on the card page, and I have things to do, students to teach …
… perhaps someone needs a flower for today. (I’ve never understood why this was named as it was, since it’s not truly violet, although many of the blossoms are a wee bit more purple than this.)
Violet’s Pride Rose (II), 4.24.17
I went on a longer than usual walk today. I was glad to do it, but I have to say that it’s just not as pleasant in our area at the moment: so much trash, so many vacated buildings … all due, I believe, to Covid. I sure wish this would end!
I walked all the way to the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden (a 7.5 mile round trip): something I used to do frequently, and with ease. Not so any longer. Is it age? Is it Covid? Something else? I have no clue! I did manage to do a bit of photography, but, at least for now, I don’t do nearly as much as I used to: I already have SO many rose images, to be honest, and I’m also still dealing with a bit of “Lack of Seeing” for some reason.
But below is one from today (I must admit that the name of this rose doesn’t exactly thrill me … something about too many deaths, perhaps?).
As I’ve mentioned before, reds are tricky. With this one I had to work on the center part, as it was far too magenta, but it can’t be fully red, as that isn’t how it looked! I really do try to keep as true to what I remember as I possibly can.
Drop Dead Rose (I), 7.18.22
A rose, that is.
Smokin’ Hot Rose (II), 5.6.19
White Rose (I), 5.8.19
Because someone asked for a couple of white rose cards I kind of got into doing cards so now I have a new boxed set. These are printed on linen stock. I currently have only done the medium size, but of course I’ll want to work on the other two sizes soon.
Creamy White Rose, 12.17.18
I think I do … but perhaps some of you out there need an extra for today too. So here … have a rose. Note the month this was made: yes, we have roses here in December. The wonders of our area!
Pink Rose with Dewdrops, 12.19.18
White Rose with Raindrops (II), 4.21.22
Over on Facebook people are posting their head shots. It’s such fun to see them all! Me? I never did head shots. What can I say? I’m a section player. I never bothered with head shots.
But I like to shoot head shots of flowers! So here … have one of those.
