The blue rose of hope by African-Amber The blue rose of hope by African-Amber
A page from my diary. Apparently blue rose mean "hope"; another thing I learnt  from the tattoo shows. I suppose because you can only hope for a blue rose cos right it doesn't exist yet. 

Oil Pastels on A5. Haven't got the hang of oil pastels yet, but I'm getting there. . . I think.

The rose is magnificent. And to be honest, my imagination is getting the best of me when I look at it for too long. I imagine the rose is the head of a figure standing behind a window and the figure is raising its hands; i.e. the rose buds. It looks like it's going to deliver one hell of a speech.

Yeah, I need to lay off that special tea, I guess.

"special tea" Lmao. Must be Camomile  Wink/Razz 

Thanks! I can see the figure now that you've pointed it out. Kinda reminds me of an Olympic runner when they win the race. :D (Big Grin)

Exactly!

By the way. Lautrec had his absinthe. I have my tea. It's an artist's thing.

I learned a bit about Lautrec in school but they never told us about the alcoholism or the prostitutes. What's up with artists and vices?

I never told you about the alcoholism and the prostitutes either. I was merely mentioned my camomile tea. I don't know where you got all the rest. 
Really ... tssss.

lol, We're on the internet, if there's alcoholism and prostitutes involved it'll be found out pretty quickly.

I'm afraid that's all too true. I keep looking for decent stuff on the internet, but the prostitutes just keep coming back every time.
