Oh, sure.  The snow is pretty.  But it’s cold.  And wet.  And I am looking forward to the warmer, sunnier days of spring– not to mention all those pretty, colorful blooms!

Listening to the winter wind howl, I’m patiently waiting for the earliest blooming flowers to “spring” to life again.  Here, the daffodils, forsythia, and pink magnolias are among the first flowers to poke out their petals.  It’s just another month or two, I tell myself…  Meanwhile, I have photos to hold me over.  I hope you like them, too.

These beautiful images and more are available, and can be printed to order on a wide variety of useful products at http://www.zazzle.com/soulbearing – You can even customize them!


Usually when flowers are my subject, photography is the medium of choice– but the response to my floral photography has been so positive that I decided it was time to do another floral painting. Here’s a sneak peek at one of the new signed original fine art paintings, not yet listed for sale on soulbearing.com

Pink Rose Floral Painting by S.Lynnette

Pink Rose Floral Painting by S.Lynnette

…a pink rose bud, larger than life in acrylic paint with gloss finish on 24×30 inch stretched cotton canvas, gallery-wrapped on solid hardwood frame, one-of-a-kind and ready to hang in the home of a flower lover or art fan.  (The “S.Lynnette” watermarks are not part of the painting.)

It should be posted for sale in just a couple of days, so get your credit cards ready!! :-)


Admittedly, I don’t know that much about them.  I can not tell you which roses are which variety, but I enjoy photographing them.  So, perhaps it is not the entire rose I appreciate; perhaps it is more specific attributes…

like the intoxicating scent and the hypnotic spiral center…

It isn’t just the sunshine, warm weather, hummingbirds, and songbirds (which sometimes have to be rescued)…

It’s also because I’m a big fan of color, and spring has so much of it.

The green clover…

Standing under a canopy of wisteria is a magical experience, even with the constant buzzing of the many bees its sweet fragrance attracts.

With my allergy to bee stings, it was a little risky getting some of these pics, but totally worth it. If you like my images, you can have them printed in high resolution on all sorts of great stuff; just click here.


It was a lovely surprise to have one of my new posters picked as one of “Today’s Best” (or yesterday’s, if you are in a part of the world where it is already March 21) on zazzle.com:
  
  
Flowers are one of my favorite photography subjects because of the colors, shapes, and sculptural qualities.
  
With the ease of digital photography, one of the biggest challenges in floral photography today is creating an image that is unusual.  Most types of flowers have been painted, sketched, or photographed from every possible angle in all sorts of settings. 
 
In this image, the perspective, lighting, and focus create a sense of motion, which is unusual in a floral still life.  The lily seems to burst open, pouring light, creating a glowing splash against the dark background.  Normally, the glowing “hot spots” of bright white would be a technical no-no in photography, as would the slight blur at the edges of some petals.  But, here, the rules have been bent effectively, giving more “life” to this floral still life.
  
Of my lily photos, this is one of my favorites, and I am glad it is a favorite of zazzle.com too.  If you’d like to see all of my images offered on zazzle.com, visit the soulbearing store on zazzle.
  
There are also more new posters, for under $25!  Including some very cool abstract prints, like these:
