PRINCESS DIANA'S GARDEN, 8X10, Original Oil, Canvas on Board, SOLD


Goodbye England's rose
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart
You called out to our country
And you whispered to those in pain
Now you belong to heaven
And the stars spell out your name


Elton John










No, this is not a rose, but a poppy photographed in Kensington Palace gardens, former home of Princess Diana.

Une fleur de coquelicot très délicate aussi délicate que l'était la princesse Diana...
Dans cette peinture, vous avez bien capturé la lumière qui comme sur la scène d'un music hall vient mettre en vedette la star...
Vos tons de verts sont aussi très beaux.
gros bisous

Its fabulous!
I have been told several times I resemble Princess Di. Even my own daughter has said so. :)
I miss her and I didnt even know her.

This is beautiful, Carol! I love the greens and gray greens with just one element of pinks in the poppy. The light is exquisite!
