I took this photograph of this orange rose at Descanso Gardens a while back. I've been searching through my photographs for roses for an angel fairy I am working on the details of and while this one isn't quite what I was looking for, I think the colors in this sunset sunrise rose are so beautiful... 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 are some sketches of starfish. I don't think I've sketched a starfish before, they are fun to draw. One of these may be an addition to a mermaid painting that I am reworking...
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in January. This is day 25.
These are rough sketches.
