Gasp.

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

excellent!

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
Sincerely,
Bob Ragland

just delightful!
