Valentine's Flowers


Valentine's Flowers
Originally uploaded by linfrye
When I got home from work Friday, my dear husband surprised me with a vase of GORGEOUS flowers!!!

I wanted to do a few pen and ink sketches (I've missed doing them) and so practiced that approach on these flowers! Those zinnias (at least I THINK they're zinnias) -- are almost 4" across!!!!! HUGE!

What a lovely arrangement and I really like the flower colors they chose to put together (or maybe Charles chose them?). Anyway, you did a great job with them. And the container is really neat!
Hugs,
Lorraine

The flowers are so 3 dimensional and immediate! Lovely sketch, Lin and what a nice man Charles is ;D.

Ahhhhh....you lovebirds are so sweet. The only Valentine I got was a "Happy Valentines Day" from the building security guard when I left work at 8:00 P.m. that night.
