The Love Rose

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 1 February 2010 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

This is another version in my 'rose' series of working the subject. Same rose, different texture and message. This image was designed to have a 'vintage' look so I brushed across the text layer to reduce the opacity in certain places. Vintage look - vintage message!
(Thanks to Tomas Turecek who provided some valuable feedback on the text edit:

Valentine's Day is coming up - and remember: love never fails. (I Corinthians 13:4-8)

2 textures: one of mine, including text layer. Also 'Scratched Caramel' by Pareeerica:

NIKON D300 2/5 seconds F/22.0 ISO 200 157 mm (35mm equiv.)

Hi Barbara, I like this one more than the previous rose. Perhaps because of warmer colour tones. I see interesting contrast in the image - it's dark above the rose "head" and yet the rose blooms proud and beautiful. Supported with those lovely and true verse it has to play a string of everyone's heart.

Exquisite!! I've long felt that that text is the noblest of all standards by which to measure ones life.
