Jewels of the night

Jewels of the night
16 x 16 inches
acrylic on canvas panel
The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;Oh,
the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
But I send you a cream-white rose bud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.
~ John Boyle O'Rielly 1844-1890

  1. This is beautiful, Parastoo.
    You are on my blog list but for some reason your thumbnail (and three others) doesn't update when you post something new. Do you have a clue why? Any hints for me would be welcome. I tend not to check the blogs if the last post reads "three months ago", but LOOK what I have been missing!
