Red Velvet BEAUTY©


It is so nice to see how members of ArtWanted inspire each other.

-an accomplished Freelance Professional Photographer-
was so kind to give me written permission to paint her beautiful "Velvet BEAUTY."

Enthused by my painting Red Velvet BEAUTY©
Hassan Pasha
-an AW digital artist-
wrote me the following beautiful poem:


What Can I give?
Hassan Pasha

You walk with compassion
On the path near and far
Oh! Caring friend of mine
The friendship you give know no bars
What can I give you Oh! Friend of mine?
The friendship you give, for which I always yearn
So many blessings does it earn
The smile you have is so pure and fine
What can I give you Oh! Friend of mine?
I pray no trouble come near you
You have the rainbow of every color and hue
Friends you have may be caring and true
What can I give you Oh! Friend of mine?
Should I write you a poem, or should I write you a prose
I believe I can give you a wild red rose.


Medium: Acrylics
Dimensions: 18"x24" (46x61 cm)
on a Studio stretched canvas.
Painted staple free sides.
Painting doesn't need a frame.

Great work!Wonderful colors'tinges,and what about the shadows...

Mark Saxton 14 Aug 2007

Gorgeous piece. On a side note: A spiritualists concept told to me once: the wider open or lesser open one paints a rose is the wider or lesser open one brings forth their spirit. Don't know if it's true and kind of Jungian, but my roses have changed in the way I draw them now. Beautiful piece.

Everybody must itself make proud of will possess a work painted by an artist. 'Bianca Thomas' has excellent photographs. To 'ArtWanted' has an excellent team, however, the sin is not going to promote the sale of the works beyond these walls! Do not I give my support for Galleries, be traditional or virtual that 'occurred in the back of the artists', that of these depend and by these little or nothing do! In this planet no artist CREATES nothing. We transform everything. An artist need authorization of nobody for PAINT. This is a new work, to whose painted. Like this, all of the geniuses of the past had previous images for TRANSFORM. I have joy with the free art in the painting, a day I like to SEE some creation beyond than already exists in this universe by everybody we created. The man is capable of changes, that do not obtain this, will be like animals that enter in extinction! It forgives for this translator horrible, but I desired to think something against 'the dictators of the arts'. CM from Brazil
