Contest Rules

Roses Still Lifestill life | ˈstil ˌlīf |
noun (plural still lifes | ˌlīfs | )
a painting or drawing of an arrangement of objects, typically including fruit and flowers and objects contrasting with these in texture, such as bowls and glassware.
• still life as a genre of painting or drawing.

Roses can be of any color, but only roses are allowed in the entries, no other flowers mixed in! All entries must be in color, as black and white, sepia, or monochrome will not be accepted. Roses can be in a vase, or any other container, or just lying about in the still life.

P.S. Just a picture of a rose will not be accepted, as it must be in the definition of a still life. A rose on the vine will not be accepted. It must be by the definition of a still life. Look at the definition of still life as copied from a dictionary. An arrangement of objects would not fit the single or group of roses by themselves. Your entries must be still life, as by definition, or they will not be accepted in this contest.

Please look carefully at the entries that were accepted as of Sept. 13. That should give you a pretty good clue as to what still life pics or paintings should look like.
My wife, a professional water color artist helped me go through all entries, and she said these that were eliminated were definitely not 'Still Life' pieces. We are still laughing out loud on the entry, a bunch of turnips. Sorry, but we both found it quite amusing, considering the overview of the contest.
