Adonis died in Aphrodite's arms and when he died she sprinkled his blood with nectar, from which sprang the short-lived anemone.

Watercolor, pencil, pastels and acrylic.

Beautiful is the only thing I can say that describes this. The shading is good but not too dramatic, the rose colors contrast just enough to draw your eyes to them for a split second to show their beauty, and the water color background suits the figure well.
