Rose Hips


Rose Hips

BRRRR ... the cold has arrived and we've got the heat a-goin'! Leaves are dropping with the gusty winds of the cold front, leaving bright berries on twigs and branches.

This sketch is from a photo of rose hips, leaves still on (as they are in some of the more protected areas), and those brilliant berries are ripe and ready for feasting by hungry wildlife. Rose hip tea is a good warm drink for us two-leggeds --chock full of Vitamin C ... especially welcome during this cold and flu season.

Stay warm everyone!!!

Lovely colors, Lin!!! Nice job on this one. The cold is reaching up here too. Snow is expected today in parts of northern NY...I'm not ready for that.

So pretty! And it is still in the 80's here in AZ.

Nice! The colors are bright and clean and the background is soft and dreamy in a beautiful contrast.

Wonderful! I'm loving the first cold mornings -- maybe in a month or so I won't feel so happy about it, but for now...
:-) I love the berries. Great job!

This is fantastic!! So delicate. I'm in love with your berries and fruit collection of paintings ... Your painting style in them is a pleasure for my soul.
