Perhaps you would have said snow?
Either way, it's okay.
I wouldn't have guessed that was ice if I'd seen this out on the internet somewhere.
Simply put, this was a miscalculation on my part.
When I saw the image, I thought, "Oh, I can do that with no problem."
While it does look like a rose, it looks like it's lying in the snow.
It wasn't suppose to!
Nor do I think that looks like a blob of ice.
A blob of something, but not ice.
Still, it was fun. It was a learning experience and I'm not totally dissatisfied with the end piece.
This to me is what art is all about.
Doing. Experimenting. Learning.
Going again until your reach a level of satisfaction you're happy with.
What is your definition?
No matter if you observe the holiday or not, I wish you happiness, friendship and love
on this Valentine's Day!
