Keep love in your heart.
A life without it
is like a sunless garden
when the flowers are dead.
The consciousness of loving
and being loved brings
a warmth and richness to life
that nothing else can bring.

Oscar Wilde

The glow was created by torch-light through an open Tulip.

A light texture was added to create interest on what was a very plain background.

    STUNNING!! I never would have dreamed of doing red on red. It works and has such a power. I so love the poem too.

  • It works well. Funny the backdrop was white. Combined with the low lighting and the torch the lovely colouring was the result.
