Camellia


Camellia

They say January is the 'blues' month -- everyone feels a let-down following the holidays. This year, I'm fortunate enough not to be suffering from that -- instead, I am longing for COLOR -- the colors of flowers.

My camellias at home are more of a pink instead of this orange/red ... but I found this photo and simply enjoyed playing with the COLOR!

Oh this is just stupendous! From the shading on the petals to the shading on the leaves and the perfect way the petals curve -- this looks SO real. Girl you have just got to get an Etsy shop or just set up a place on your blog to sell cards. This one would be a best seller for sure. Thanks for the lovely bright color on this gloomy dark day!
Hugs,
Lorraine

Whoopie! This little gem would lighten anyone's gloomy spirits. It did mine! It's so delicately painted--you can feel the thinness of each petal.
