Serious play by RichardLeach Serious play by RichardLeach
A collaboration with my dear friend Hanan, :iconpartiallyhere:

My words on the left were inspired by her photo on the right. The handwriting is mine, and the texture on the left is a scan of antique paper I made. Hanan merged the handwriting and texture and assembled the two halves of the piece.

The text is also here: [link] , in case my handwriting cannot be read.

a great deal of sad beauty in this one, the kind of beauty that you can only catch out of the corner of your eye--pardon me for waxing poetic. . .

This looks really beautiful and I love it. It is not important what the image is of on the right. But what is it?

Thanks very much. It's a self portrait made by my friend - she is moving and that creates the strange effect - that is her black hair at the top, and some sort of red fabric in motion in the middle.

it is the rose, Richard, in this image, the red petals and the green leaves :) and that pink thing is my fingers (yes, weird, i know :nod: )
