This is a handsome spread.

Perhaps a requiem!

Thank you! I do like the idea of a requiem. They dry very well and hold their color ! I adore them,

This could be printed very large and framed. It is beautiful!

It is indeed a very nice work.
I am sure that a large print would be most suitable !
Well done ! :)

with this one you invite me (and a lot of folks, I'm sure) to escape somewhere you even have no idea where.
A rare where, that's fair.
I really and simply love it.
:)

PS I love giant prints, you already know that, and this one large would be very nice, but you may also consider a tiny, precious print, delicately but very simply framed, like a jewel to look at before going to sleep…

Thank you. I think art should take you some place other than our own ordinary minds stay in most of the time..I do not know what to do yet with the work, small or large. Your idea sounds really cool as well. The tiny fortune of bachelor buttons !
BTW I am so enjoying " Noir " Inspiring and also very relaxing.

May be both, to be hung together, one beside the other…
Kinda attempt of scaling other's imaginations

That you do this with Picasa, (almost devoid of all the tools I depend on), impressed me so much. Craftsmanship uses available tools and still excels. 🍃

Here, that one flower in the lower right, (which stands out sharp and bold), is so crucial to the success of this work. It provides a reference to give depth to the rest of the image. The smudgy b.g. shows welcome disdain for perfection - as if we have to accept some wild woman with disheveled hair as she is vibrant, exciting, independant and powerful!

This is built with ideas and sufficient technique to have flourish, but not enough to constrict it’s voice!

Kudos!

You witch!

❤️

Asher

I like what I see. I don’t have to explain ( or can’t ) why I sometimes like something.
Enough that it gives me pleasure.

This one falls in that category. Let the pundits dissect it! I ain’t no doctor either, with or without a scalpel.

Each of us has our likes and dislikes. Human nature as it were. Good to see you.
