"A Persian..."

...Flower design
from the second half of the 18th Century, England...
jazzed up a bit with my Pitt Pen
backlit by a golden metallic watercolor and salt wash
making it simply glow.
Happy Blooming Tuesday!

“We have come into this exquisite world
to experience
ever and ever more deeply
our divine courage, freedom and light!”
~Hafiz of Persia
(Poet, 1320-1389)

Persia is such a beautiful country it is too bad it has been in such turmoil these past years. This is a beautiful flower. I really like the background. Isn't it funny that the word verification is unran. Sort of what I was thinking about Iran.

Exquisite combination of ideas. Loved the 'baying moon' as well!!

Beautiful. I can see the Jacobean influence but this is definitely your own.

Another great quote

Excellent!!!! Just a treat for the old eyes! I even love your description! "...backlit by a golden metallic watercolor and salt wash." Now that sounds beautiful! And it is!
