Pink Abundance

     I have been trying to "tone down" my texture processing because I truly enjoy vibrant colors. However, others are more attracted to the "softer" look and monochromatic feel. This image is beautiful in black and white, which I posted here on October 7th; but, the original color SOOC is gorgeous. This time, for Art of Texture (Kim Klassen's on-line course), I chose to use the scripted background and her choice of text. This is not for any particular challenge, just a wonderful image, in my opinion. More than likely, I will use it for gifting.

Didn't mean to confuse any "lookers" from Texture Tuesdays who may not have linked in from Kim's Cafe (direct link) and may have clicked return via my comments I posted to his/her blog... smiles... the TT post follows this one, dated November 14. Thanks so much to returning family and friends - and, to new visitors. I just had to continue working with CS. Hugs - kareninkenai

That is so lovely Karen, and perfectly processed. The lighting is so wonderful making such nice contrasts on the petals! Have a great day! Jeanne

What a gorgeous photograph, and the texture is lovely with this one. I love how you wrote the text on the leaf and the font that you used too.

Your photograph certainly is abundant in beauty.

Gorgeous! I am enjoying viewing your blog and photos. (got your link via Kim's Essentials class yesterday!)

I too love the vibrance of color, but I also love the monochromatic dreamy photos that is so popular right now. Given the choice between your sweet pink peony and a less colorful one, I'd choose pretty in pink.

Thanks for stopping by The Cottage on the Corner and leaving a kind comment.

Hard to imagine a delicate spring-like bloom when your winter is fast approaching. Love the juxtaposition of such a thought. Enjoy a memorable holiday week....with family and friends. I love to see the photos of your granddaughters......I am a bit shy sharing my grandchildren......but what could be more beautiful?

Karen I absolutely love this image. I of course am partial to pink peony's and have them in my own garden! They grown phenomenally here on Cape Cod! ~ Liz (TT)
