This is my Birthday Weekend and I gave myself a little gift of getting on my blog and writing a short post. And of course the flower is the best object for that kind of occasion, isn’t it.

This semester in school has been tough: managing equivalent of 17 units and working part time was a good challenge yet did not stop me to paint. This simple still-life has almost no background, which allows for the Rose “to speak”. The light from the left illuminated the petals making the Pink of the Rose more interesting and diverse. The dark Green of the leaves helps to the Red to pop and brings the flower top towards the front of the painting.

  1. Hello Irina:) I wish you a happy birthday! Your rose is lovely and it really speaks: I see a heart in the middle of it! Do you see it too? Have a nice day:)

  2. Happy Birthday!..hope it's a good one. Your present to yourself is such a great painting. Roses can be difficult, yet you have captured this one so well…makes me imagine it with a gorgeous scent too.

  3. Hi Renate,
    Thank you for the congratulations. It is cool you saw the heart. I have not noticed it but I guess painting with Love can bring us a cute surprise :0)
    Thank you,

  4. Wishing you a very happy birthday dear wonderful artist…and yes 17 units at one time is a heavy heavy load indeed. good luck with that.
    Your rose is beauty in detail.

  5. Absolutely stunning! You captured this so perfectly, the rose, the leaves, the glass & the subtle shadows. Wonderful.

    And a very happy birthday to you too! Hope you had a fabulous day!

  6. Thank you Lynn so much! Yeah.. I had my hands full. But thank God my last Final for the most intense class was this Saturday and it is now over. The study load became lighter; and, I even can accept a commission now. One of my art collector requested it today (what a great Birthday Gift,eh) and I am excited to put my hands to start the work.
    Have a great day!
