show me some more roses

The light was so very pretty while I took these pictures....it was late afternoon and the sun was streaming in through my Dining Room window and though it was getting low and would soon be behind the mountain....it was still very bright.....Here below is a closer look at this same flower.... There were some other roses that Van used in the two arrangements....they were more of a peach color as apposed to pink....They were so incredibly beautiful..... And these Roses went from this inner Peach-Pink, out to this pale green, as the pinkish ones did, too, but more complex in a way...... Here below are a group of these flowers all together....This picture was taken about three days after I got this arrangement.....But it is still beautiful...... And here below....another view of these lovely special Roses....... And then, below.....because it is almost my most favorite thing to do....A closer look at these exquisite roses....in this case, right up against a scrumptious yellow Rose....(There will be more of these in a later post.....). Nature gives us everything that is beautiful and pure and real and therefor, awesome...... And here below....some more close-ups of these Roses.....Feast your eyes...... I love these gradations of color....it is something very close to my soul---I have done so many paintings where there are gradations of color.....so, this just pleases my eye and my heart, too......In fact, I love everything about these flowers.....Everything! Above, all those many colors and all those gradations are in this one flower! Perfect! Totally perfect! Above, two of these flowers are hugging each other....more perfection of color and shape. That's one of the other things that knocks me out about Roses.....The shapes of the petals. Look at the softness of those beautiful petals.....More gradations, too..... More colors and more curves, above....... Light and dark and shadows, above and below.......It's all like a beautiful abstract painting.....And it well could be...except, it's not. It's this, below.


More To Come.........

Another solid photographic effort! If I didn't have two rambunctious boys who tend to kick soccer balls inside the house, I might be tempted to have several vases of those on display for my own morale.

Cheers, dear.

As I said before I've never been that excited by seeing photos of flowers, but your photos are an exception. The lighting, colour and composition is wonderful.

Those really are pretty. When the outer petals begin to droop, I pluck them off and rub them on my face. It sounds sort of odd, but I can't help myself.

Naomi, these photos are just perfection. I love the first one and the green gradations in the others. Really beautiful.

Such a unique way to view and photograph flowers. They do resemble paintings.

I keep changing my mind as to which is my favourite. They are so beautiful. Do you put anything in the water to nourish them and make them last longer . Some people put aspirin in. And do you top up the water everyday?

Oh, normally I'm able to put words of what I see and what you present on your blog.
So please excuse me for watching in silence.
I do think you know what I mean...

Zooming in is overwhelming. I know you are wishing to paint them.
