Art Creations Friday - Smell the Roses

Smell the Roses


This week for Art Creations Friday they gave us this beautiful image of this woman in black. I just fell in love with her eyes. I am trying to use some of the softer palettes and the whites in some of my art work. Hence the roses and the lacy background. I must say for me it is a challenge. I will probably play a little more with this image when my work space is cooler till then....this is it.

Hot or not, I like what you've got. I didn't mean to speak in rhyme -- it happens to me all the time. At risk of sounding snootiful, I'll just say she's beautiful!!

Very much like how you handled this; the ingreity of the womans face and eyes are still prominent in the work, but the other elements add to the mystique already there.
Beautiful!
