original tree nature painting, french liliac bouquet painting, shabby romantic girl portrait rose painting,

                                           "Rose Petals"

rose girl portrait
                                                                            The Falling of a Rose
                                               Nestled between the tiniest blades of grass, lies a delicate petal,
                                                       fallen from what was once the sweetest rose.
                                              A tender moment in thought, of remembering the beauty,
                                            passionate remains this soul who knew of such loveliness.

tree painting
                                                                A Tree in Memory
                                This living tree, grows for you and me and still those yet to be.
                                              It awakens my heart, flooding with memories.
                                  Wind blowing, gently swaying, I can see her waving to me.
                                         Bathing in the sunlight, I can see him smiling at me.
                                  Years gone, leaves have fallen, branches have scattered
                                  Aging gracefully, reminding us of them, young endlessly.

                                  Remembering those divine, a memory of yours and mine.
French lilac bouquet painting
I took a pictures of trees down the cemetary where I walk. I finally got a chance to paint one, then I gave up on the photo and finished painting  myself the branches became to confusing in my snap shot. I'm hoping to get a better picture of my lilacs, I kept getting a glare on my finished painting even without  sunlight. I'll have to try again. I wanted to take a little break before my next angel and do some different paintings, I feel I am more refreshed when I take a break and do something different.  *** I don't know how everyone's weather is but it is starting to get nice here!!!!*** Thank you, for visiting. Sincerely, Jonny

Dear Jonny
You are such a sweet inspiration to me.. Your portrait is sheer beauty! And your Tree in Memory.. It is magnificent.. So very lifelike.. I love your light source beaming through the center pathway.. I wish I was able to accomplish leaves on the tree as well. I have yet to see anyone paint lilacs with such beauty.

Are these your poems Jonny? Simply beautiful!
Wishing you a joyful week

Thank You so much Diane and Penny, Yes I did write them,im not a writer at all, but I never try to believe in not doing something because I think I cant- I look at painting the same way just painting exactly what I see without any restrictions or hesitation or I think Im not sure of something- I just trust my eyes- and add a little hope-Thank You for your comments, Sincerely, Jonny
