What Fun!

Watercolor Fun, inspired by a rose


Inspired by lovely pinks, oranges, creams.  Petals.

I had fun dissecting the rose petals, then layering and stacking them together.

All the while wondering how I might create an abstract.  Inspired by roses. Yet, looking nothing like a rose. Nor even a flower.

But. The colors.

Such gorgeous colors.

This was fun. It was relaxing.  There was a zen quietness and peace in the creation that I find utterly….. worthwhile.


No. It doesn’t look like a flower!!  But it certainly brings them back to remembrance.  How good is that?  Quite good enough.

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at society6.com/debiriley and, redbubble.com/people/debijriley/shop

  1. Love this color combination. I recently purchased a set of dessert plates of irregular shapes, very similar color combination. I’m not allowing anyone to use them yet.

        I play with food photography. I do it for my daughter. She is a little chef preparing her portfolio
        So we end up buying just the one of many plates.
