This is a resubmission of a previous image. Reworked to adjust color & minor noise & added dry brush filter on the Rose.

My Entry for the 101 Beatles Song Theme.

VERY beautiful still life! The color and clarity are perfect! Very artistic... #677002

Of course you chose that title! Wonderful setup, colors, clarity, detail and lighting! Happy theme day Michelle! #4415873

Michelle R. Kovach June 20, 2007

Thank you very much Emily & Katarina!

LOL Katarina, Of course! :)
My dad used to sing me the song & dance around with me when I was little, but he always forgot the words so he'd hum it after the Mi-chelle Ma-Belle part.


Happy Theme day! #4415879

I had already planned to resubmit this one a while ago but when I knew the Beatles theme was coming up I saved it for that.
