Salsa by Lilyas Salsa by Lilyas
I am in rose mode, he he! I liked my previous roses so much that I dug out my 2008 Magical Rose collection and edited another piece of the series. Isn't she a gorgeous representative of her kind?

My choice of title bears a meaning, too. Salsa means sauce but it is also a Caribbean dance. Last month I started a Salsa course which is really enjoyable and fun! I dedicate this work to my Salsa teacher Miguel who brings out the best in me. ¡Gracias, amigo!

This rose is absolutely, without a doubt gorgeous - but that is something we all know upon simply even glancing at this.

When I looked closer I realized how much intricate detail is shown in these photographs - Crisp and clear; the colors flow perfectly together and accentuate each other. It's both aesthetically appealing, and just a simply killer work of art. <3

To Me, art is at its most beautiful, when the artist experiments with themselves. Using their creativity, use of colour and most of all their emotions and coming up with a work of art, such as this piece, that is not only original but unique as well....:icontyttataudnor:
