Rose Petals

I created this painting of a rose blossom to evoke the feeling of being pulled into the depths of the petals, like a lover being drawn into the imagined reaction of the beloved recipient.

It was originally exhibited for the first time at the now-defunct Link Gallery in the Oregon District of Dayton, Ohio.

An earlier version of “Rose Petals” was a work of paper, created by placing groups of “petals” (hand-cut from heavy Arches cold-press paper) in successive layers to create a unique, three-dimensional view of a rose blossom. The finished work was mounted to archival black mat board and then placed in a black shadow box frame. This unique version of "Rose Petals" was sold during the Dayton Visual Arts Center's 14th Annual Art Auction.
