Bringing the beauty in~
Snow pea bush
Roses, Butterfly Bush, Blue Sage.
If you want the beauty to last, look at this handpainted box from Kashmir India. It is one box from different angles.
Each box is painted with a single hair bush, requiring years for the artist to make.
It’s not easy replicating mother nature!

the boxes are stunning.
Thank you so much and I do agree with you! Much appreciated~
Wonderful captures! Those hand painted boxes are exquisite!
Isn’t it wonderful. It is the same box from differening zooms. I need to correct this. Thank you for your appreciation~
I’m speechless — and that doesn’t happen very often!! 🙂
How lovely of you to say!! Cheers to you~
Not easy to replicate but the artist did a very fine job of it. Beautiful still life. Why do we say still life I wonder. There is always so much life pulsing through everything!
True. I know it came from painting. A moment frozen in time. Think of those paintings with a petal falling from the boquet. Love them! Cheers & thank you my friend. I would like some custard too please! When you find the time???????
Always have time for you 🙂
Cindy… these are so beautiful I wish I had an aroma projecting commuter!!!
I wish that all the time. I bet google has it in development!! Thank you & cheers~
So beautiful, Cindy, and those hand painted boxes are exquisite. I want one. 🙂

Love the way you reveal it. Rare beauty.
I thought of you when I posted the Kashmir box and our discussion of the underpaid artists who create these beautiful pieces of art, so I am glad you liked it. Cheers~
Aw! and I thought of you two days back while watching a movie. “Venuto Al Mondo”. If you like watching movies, please watch this one.
Thank you and I thought of you two days back while watching a movie. Venuto Al Mondo. Your recent post about the unrest was the reason.
I will find it! Thank you Arjun~
gorgeous flowers, but the boxes are stunning!
Isn’t it gorgeous. It’s beauty grows on me too. I don’t tire of looking at it~
Hi Rebecca! So glad you enjoyed~ Thank you!
Beautiful setting of flowers.
The painted box is awesome!
Isn’t it just very special! Such detail and artistry~
Loved the box, Cuz, and the flowers are gorgeous.
Amazing photos, as usual. I love how the dark/black background makes the colours and details of the flowers become more lively and stunning.
Yes, I had fun with that! I used a black towel on a board and a black napkin on the bottom, but it still wasn’t quite right, so I increased the darkness, and the flowers popped out. I was surprised and pleased! Thank you for diserning this Halim & cheers to you!
Wow, that’s an interesting technique!. Cheers to you too, Cindy.
