Authentic expression; staying close to what is real and sacred @ gemmashouse
Lovely Gemma - I'm listening to the song while looking at your art!
I hope your heart isn't bleeding like the rose! I like the song very much, now its tune is reverberating in my head.
Ouch! Your haiku sounds so sad...glad to hear it's related to Starry Starry Night - great, yet very sad song!
What a lovely and vibrant rose watercolor. Kim will love it.
I LOVE this- such a cool, creative idea! I'm a little sad that i won't get to see any of your pages in real life. At least I can admire them here.Hugs,Stephanie
I LOVE everything about this,the haiku,sacRED (how clever)and the rose!!!I wanted to paint roses for a long time,almost put some in a painting, but chicken-ed out...Yours is so good! I will try again one day.♥♥
Beautiful, Gemma! Just beautiful!
Beautiful vibrant reds in your rose! Tsunami
Aaah, you have me humming that song now. Is there a line in that song that mentiones blood or drops or roses? Hm, I will have to check that out right away (otherwise I cannot sleep tonight. Do you know that feeling when your mind won't rest until you found the answer?) Anyway, Happy weekend to you Gemma!
Ha, found it! "The silver thorn of bloody rose..." And it still is a very sentimental but wonderful song...
Excellent Haiku and I love that song that so reminds me of Van Gogh's Starry Night. Very nice rose Gemma.:)
vibrant image teamed wellmuch love...
Such a beautiful rose!
there is beauty all around here in this post. the watercolor rose, the haiku and the inspiration from starry starry night. i had to look up the lyrics and forgot how very sad the words are. but i leave here with a smile at your creative spirit.
A beautiful bloom beautifully painted! Love the vibrancy of the colours x
