It's cold, much cold and outside there's snow.
A painting inspired by the moment and by a photo I took yesterday from my garden.
Oil, knife and crayons.
Hope you like;)

PS: photo is only for idea and to show what courage may have a rose in February:)

Very nice indeed, strange how you have so much snow and yet here in Canada we have none. The world is going crazy.

What an extraordinary flower in the snow. Lovely connotations. Also your painting is inspired.

I'm delighted with how icy cold it feels despite the warm colours of the flowers themselves :):)

Silvy, you mastered the art of painting pure ice and that thing has actually left your canvas and made me refresh, for here in Brazil, today, is a HOT 92°. Very nice and beautiful painting! I can't paint a rose or flower for my life.. can someone shed some ideas? Silvy, you do real well with these, can you give me some tippers? Thank you!

Non č certo il Generale Inverno a poter fermare la tua arte, anzi, ti ha dato modo di creare una delle pių belle composizioni floreali mai viste in questo forum!

Silvy, I first saw this painting a week or two ago, but it keeps coming back to my mind. So I must comment...I admire the creativity and style you have shown in depicting a rose. Your work is an inspiration for me.

silvy,
"Frozen Beauty" is just beautiful. The wind swept brush application
really accentuates the atmosphere of a blustery winter day but
never understating the warm inviting colors of the roses. Lovely! :)

Susan:) I am very pleased that you like my roses.
Grazie

Many thanks jibes:)

Mille grazie Marzie:)
think that after all that snow the red rose of the photo is still beautiful.
I'll make a new photo and a paint because her tenacity truly deserves;)
