Another pink flower

I love the skinny yellow “thread like" tendrils near the center of the pink flower and the fuzziness of the yellowish flower in the back.

5 Facts – in no particular order

Used two layers of Kim Klassen’s Portrait texture on this photo

Fact #1 – I love, love the color green (can’t get enough)

Fact #2 – I collect Ukrainian eggs – they are like little works of art

Fact #3 – I love creating - photography, beadwork, painting – everything else dissolves into the background while I focus.  Time stands still and yet flies by at the same time (I don’t understand how this happens or how to explain it).

Fact #4 – I love mystery novels and movies

Fact #5 – Autumn is my favorite season.  It’s the colors - browns, oranges, reds - in nature that I find so appealing and after the heat of summer I welcome the crisp and cool weather of our autumn.
