I took this photograph of these pink flowers at the L.A. Arboretum during a recent visit. This is a close up of the winter blooming flower tree that I shared last Wednesday. I thought it was such a beautiful tree... I hope that you will enjoy this photo!
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 is adorned with a heart around her eye, I think I have hearts on the mind... 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 February. This is day 8.
This is a rough sketch. I am also participating in the February 29 Faces Challenge, this is face 8.
