Dear Yan! Wonderful contrast of color and lines, infinitely beautiful rose...

Best wishes. Eva

Dear Eva,

This for me deserves to be the promotional photo for one of the classic operas: dramas of love, passion, satire, and feud. Carmen for example.

The red character on black seems to me to be very Oriental on the one hand and yet very universal on the other. Mikado and Geisha come to mind.

The image is based on a photograph of a rose that was given to my wife and I by a friend, Gay. Hence "Gay's Mikado Rose".

I am thrilled that you like it, Eva.

I love this! Yes it's very oriental in design, it has great impact. Greetings, Anita

I am glad you do, Anita - I think it might be the artist in you and the artist in me that we both enjoy such a visual impact. It is far better than the original image now!

"Dou itashimashite"

"Gamsa hamnida"
