INSPIRED BY THE ROSE is an original 16″ x 12″ x 0.75″ (40.64 x 30.48 x 1.91 cm) oil painting on canvas. I usually do not have a vision when I start to paint, only an idea. The finally artwork rarely turns out as I think it will. It just flows from my spirit and this was no different.
INSPIRED BY THE ROSE is dedicated to my mother. The rose was her favorite flower. After I presented the painting to her, I researched and was not surprised to discover that her favorite rose color, yellow, means CARE, because she did.
For years she enjoyed the painting and when I recovered it from my brother, after her passing, it was still in the original gold painted solid wood frame you see today. The owner will surely enjoy it as much as she.
Painted in 1990, this painting has been museum sealed and copyrighted for authenticity. It is framed, backed, ready to hang with appropriate hardware to be enjoyed for many years to come.
