Roses in the Snow


Valentines's day is closing in and there's snow on the ground so this seemed like a timely thing to post. If you're thinking that this isn't quite up to current standards that's because it's a good 20 years old. I was digging through the accumulated junk the other day, and found this illustration, just about the last remaining piece from my first go round in the art world. So the imagery may be timely but the posting is a bit tardy. In my defense though, when this was done there was no internet to post to. I was just waiting for technology to catch up.

So happy Valentine's Day to all the ladies out there, and for the guys, the ball's in your court, I'm covered. For once I didn't forget.

Stunning's good. Thanks a lot and thanks for dropping by. Should have something a bit more current soon.

Happy Valentine's Day to you, Dave albeit a bit belated. What a stunning painting and I don't even like roses.

Now hang on here. If I'd been a week late with Valentine's Day I'd be in a world of hurt. This should cost you big time. :) Maybe I should let it slide this one time though.

Thanks, glad you like it. As I remember it was rejected by the client. They went with a photo.

The rose speaks of love but the thorns and wires speak of something else.

Happy very very late Valentine's Day to you Dave

I went to the way back machine for this one, back to when I was young and stupid. I remember being pretty pleased with the way it turned out. It still holds up pretty well.
