My Photograph of a Candy Cane Rose at Huntington Gardens + December Sketches Art, Day 21 Sketch, Big Eye Fairy...



I took this photograph of a rose at Huntington Gardens a while back.  It reminded me of Christmas and striped candies...  I think the actual name of the rose is "Rock and Roll."  I hope that you will enjoy this photo!  Also, happy winter solstice!


I love to paint flowers, you may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.

=============================================


Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  She looks a bit like she might be up to something...  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a goddess or a mermaid.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in December.  This is day 21.  

This is a rough sketch.

If you know about the meaning of a rose's color, this rose might be an interesting art subject
