Day two of the April Colorado blizzard. What do you do with the left over Carnations from the first day's image, Carnations In A Vase"? You make "Carnation Ice Cream". After arranging this image The black handle, of the ice cream scoop was a distraction. I searched around until I found a bottle of Acrylic red paint. Got out the brushes and painted the handle red. What a difference! This is how to spend a day snowed in when your creative juices are flowing and you just must use a camera.

There's an emptiness inside her and she'd do anything to fill it in. Though it's red blood bleeding from her now, it's more like cold blue ice in her heart. She feels like kicking out all the windows and setting fire to this life. She could change everything about her using colors bold and bright, but all the colors mix grey. ~*DaveMatthewsBand*~

This is an excellent image - I love the composition and the colours and lighting work well. The red handle is definitely a good thing but I can't believe you had the patience to paint it rather than just digitally manipulating it.

Great idea and beautifully executed. I live how you lit this and how you balanced the colors with an off-white background. Those touches make the flowers look good enough to eat!

I love everything about this photo - such creativity! The flowers are beautiful, the red background really sets off the colors in the photo, the title is perfect, and the creativity to put it all together is just amazing! I am so impressed. This is definitely a favorite!!
