Pure poetry !!!

Absolutely stunning delicacy.

Fragile relaxation.

Who knew a rose could have a gesture! I love the deep orange almost hidden by the shambles of petals.
I can almost feel the fragile, wilted, silken petals and the sharp spike of the thorn. Again so very tactile.

Really sweet


There are so many kinds of realism in painting - some seems almost synthetic, think this is just the opposite.

How do you do these paintings so quickly??
I am amazed!!

Soft, graceful, lush, sad. Breathtaking!

Balletic, elegantly feminine without being cute or coy.. a total wonderful surprise in the mailbox. Thank you Julian for another visual adventure!

Texture you can feel! Love this rose.

I am painting single flowers also.
It's a Zen thing with me.
See the rose paintings of Richard Schmid.
Solid work as usual
