My Photograph of Pink Flowers at the L.A. Arboretum + February Sketches Art, Day 8 Sketch, Fairy Angel, 29 Faces...



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.
