Celtic Rose by flowerelfe
The wild rose bush outside my window is currently in full bloom. It is an ancient bush with tall arching branches and secret shadows beneath its twining stems. I was listening to the CD "Secrets of Faeries" by Neil H, and the track "Secret Garden" inspired an image of this Midsummer-rose Fairy smiling from the bush. Here she stands at the window of her secret garden.
I designed the Celtic motif border by stippling using fine-nib pen. The rose and fairy are worked in coloured pencil.
