I Am Still Here by Lilyas I Am Still Here by Lilyas
In the deepest cold this hibiscus flower is still blooming at our window. It's braving the elements. Almost every day it has a new bud and makes our dark days Winter days happier. I hope you enjoy it, too!

Originally the petals are pure red but I was inspired by ~Sheldon-Rueben's coloring works and gave it a new color look.

Precious hibiscus. Nice coloring you gave it, did you decolor the red so it would look orange and yellow or added the colors?

You've provided a pleasant description that highlights this flower's beauty and life. To me, the petals resemble the fragility of tissue paper. Great color, too.

What an interesting bokeh, the petals stand out so vividly from the stem, so clear and beautiful. And then the manipulation of the petal colours are breathtaking, it makes me think of a summer sunset, standing alone in the middle of a cold, blue winter day.
