So very beautiful Lianne! I love the textures...and the soft look..its just delightful!!! v/f/t/g+!

Wow, what a wonderful poetic message! I would like to see this beautiful digitally enhanced flower as part of a new art theme in the group: "The Magic of Flowers". You are invited to submit this image. L/F Here is the link:

ps -your poem is wonderful! The word courage really resonated with me.

Really interesting. I like the shapes and colours and the lightness of the open bloom. v

Another vote for this beautiful work. I love this!

This is a beautiful image with stunning processing. My first impression was that this is an image with depth and meaning, and your description confirmed that. v & f

Lianne Schneider replied:

Carla I am so very sorry that this beautiful and touching comment slipped through the cracks somehow. And I'm so glad I found it today - it's important to me. This is one of my mother's two favorite poems I've ever written and the lilac bush - it's really hers. But the metaphor stands - so thank you so very very much for letting me know that you got it. xo

I'm a fan of your work too, beautiful photo and writing.

Lianne Schneider replied:

Thank you so much Alga - your recent paintings just took my breath away. I'm delighted you like my work too. xo

Beautiful and elegant! F/V

Lianne Schneider replied:

Thank you so much Kendall - the poem for this is one I wrote especially for my mother who loves lilacs so much. Glad you liked it.

I love what you wrote as well! Thanks. How true it is for most if not all of us.

Lianne Schneider replied:

Madeline my deepest apologies - I was off FAA for several months and missed your lovely comment. Thank you so much - I'll be by to catch up as soon as I can.

Lianne, I like the texture in this and how the one lilac stands out. Nice job as usual!

Lianne, every time I come to your site I find another treasure of beauty and wonder. Love so much the softness and the tenderness of the textures in this superb photo. I'm in total awe !!!! f,v

Lianne Schneider replied:

Aww Ana how very lovely of you. I did this to go with the poem in my last book that my mother loved the best - the one up in the description. So I'm just so delighted that you liked this!

Amazing piece of art, wonderful composed!

Lianne Schneider replied:

What a perfectly lovely thing to say Evelina - I'm honored by your visit and grateful for your wonderful comment.

Beautiful work.....

Lianne Schneider replied:

Thank you so much Iris - that means a lot to me.

Lianne this is one of finest florals! Elegant and as touching as the words you wrote. v/f

Lianne Schneider replied:

Ah Bob - thank you so much. I truly wish I could duplicate this...I created it long before I had any idea what I was doing! But your compliment about the poem means even more to me...thank you.

Another vote for this beauty!

Lianne Schneider replied:

Thank you thank you thank you - the poem for this is my mother's favorite of all I've written so I should have said the image is for her too.

Your photo and your writing is very sensitive and beautiful, Lianne. Thank you for your willingness to be so honest and vulnerable.

Lianne Schneider replied:

Ann, it is friends like you who take the time to read and process more than just the image who make me want to continue to do both - write and create art. Thank YOU for that - it means more than I can say.

A splendidly presented photo design, Lianne- your poem is very poignant and beautifully written!!

Lianne Schneider replied:

It just pleases me so much Will that you take the time to read as well as view. That means the world to me and I can't tell you how touched I am. Thank you.

I came back to give this one another vote and to praise the poem that accompanies it. Have you thought about a book of your poems and art? Let me know if you are working on it!

Lianne Schneider replied:

Awww how wonderful of you to say Lenore. Actually I do have two books out - the first mostly poetry and early photography, the second more photography with the poetry. But I'm thinking very seriously about a new one - perhaps an e-book for Nook. Books with color prints are very expensive to produce and sell. So I'll let you know when I figure out how to do Thank you so much!!

I love what you've done with this. Beautiful work.

Lianne Schneider replied:

Thank you so much Odd - it was very different for me - I honestly wish I could remember how I did it - lol.

a lovely, lovely work of art!!!!

Lianne Schneider replied:

Thanks so much, sweetie - I appreciate that, especially as this was a bit of an experiment!

This is a beautiful work. The description is so insightful. A favorite. Thank you so much for your comments on my pictures.

Lianne Schneider replied:

Thank you so much Dale - I've tried to keep up with new work but have certainly fallen behind on replies. I so appreciate your support!

I love your capture and the effect of the image, Lianne! It has the strong focal point and very nice texture, well done! I appreciate your nice feedback on my "Yellowstone National Park 6", thank you!!

Lianne Schneider replied:

Thank you so much Xueling - my apologies for being behind on my replies! I appreciate it very much!
