A red rose is artistic by itself. The art of the singular ruby flower impresses as a slight red overpowers all the green in a disproportionate way. The posterized view is my favorite, making a wonderful view on canvas. Beauties all!

Dianne said...

I love the poster edges :)

Rose said...

I really like it with Poster edges!

I love the Napolean Hill quote. So true. A beautiful red rose perfect fot Ruby Tuesday. HRT

A deep red rose is truly something special. A flower symbolizes love. And I think its significance is far too obvious because the thorn of the rose represents some upheavals, trials and pain associated with love.

My maiden entry to Ruby Tuesday
