Snow-White and Rose-Red

SOLD
Alot of my childhood was spent with my head buried in fairytale books and this story was one of my favourites.I could not get enough of books by Enid Blyton and Brothers Grimm .Saturdays you would always find me at the library and they were the happiest days of my life.

    Another Beautiful piece! Your roses have always been my favourite. Red and White together always reminds me of Alice in Wonderland? Maybe it's the playing cards?

    Keep up the brilliant work, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so just think of those that dont appreciate your work as blind (or short sighted, sounds less cruel!)

  7. Azra,

    Great title and painting! I still remember going to see Snow White at the drive in movie theater when it first came out! I too was enamored with visiting the library and getting lost in fairy tales when I was a child. One of my favorite classes to go to in grammar school was library class. The director of the would always read us the most fabulous books. I loved listening to the crackle of the crisp new plastic coverings on her newest additions that she saved to read to us!

  8. I always think that rose petals feel like velvet, and you captured that so beautifully, Azra! And as always, I love the way you portray glass. Well done!

  10. The softness of velvet rose petals and hardness of glass - contrasts beautifully rendered!
