House Sparrow and Roses



I know I skipped a few steps but I thought it was getting tedious. I basically finished the foreground and finally added the rose which I was really looking forward to paint. That being said,I'm calling this done.

Lovely! Great to see some new work from you. As Clive said, great lighting - I especially like the rose on the right that is toned oh-so-nicely.

Hi John, I wanted to use your picture as a cover for my poetry book I am publishing. Would you be okay with that? It's perfect & quite beautiful!

John said...

MrsCiCeJ, Hi I would be open to that can you email me and tell me a little more about it please. Thanks for the the kind words!

Hi John, sorry it took so long, but where is your email address posted?

Hi John, I just wanted to follow up with you about the possibility of using your photo for the cover of my first poetry book. If this is something you are still okay with, I would love for us to discuss it further. Of course your name would be noted as the artist. I hope all is going very well with you and your family. Thanks again for considering it.
