Inspirations

 

Flowers,  roses can be such a magical source of daily inspiration. To enjoy their beauty, their aroma, and their form.

They also,  serve as fabulous and colorful sources to paint very personal and expressionist paintings from.

When you have a bouquet in the studio, its as if they are singing and you …. are listening.

 

Roses,  can teach beginning artists to ‘listen’ to their subject more intently.

Like having the radio on,  but the volume is turned on  low.

So that you really must, tune in,  to hear it play.

Each flower is unique.

Every rose has its own shape, form, scent, and song.

It makes its own music.

 

And we need to interpret, each flower,  as separate entities.  Deserving of being heard.

inspired…by the rose

 

 

I’ve painted lots of roses, and lots of flower paintings.

Many were very tight. Very botanical. Very ‘realistic.’   But no.

 

This, remains my favorite rose painting.

 

It carries within it, the feeling of the roses in that bouquet…. the day I’d brought them in to the studio.

A huge mass of tangled yellow golds, warm sunflower oranges,  scarlet red petals – all bursting at the seams.

 

It was lovely.
