Newly-opened rose


At this time of the year, rose plants in my neighborhood are always full with flowers. That is why I always make sure that I have my smartphone when I walk around. Two days ago, I saw a newly opened rose flower in front of the house along the way to our health center. From the photo I took, I painted the small sketch above (3 by 4 inches, acrylic).

Adenium flower

I have some photographs of flowering Adenium plants which I took during my recent travel to Asia. That's where I got the idea for this small painting.

This is a sketch of a flowering  France geranium plant that I planted in a pot. 
We don't have many plants in our terrace now but I always try to have geraniums 
whenever they are available.

So to celebrate it I posted this red orange rose sketch.

As I said in my previous post, I have been making handmade cards. 
This one is sold and was sent yesterday as a birthday card.
Painted this last Monday. 
Hope your day is as bright as this card.
