Rose Briar, oil and enamel on canvas 200 x 100 x 3 cm
Rose Briar, a forgotten memory, a summer evening, the sun light in my eyes. We climbed the hill, hand in hand and fall laughing in the wild flowers. I remember the rose briar; I remember the sweet pink petals and the sharp sting of thorns. I remember laughing and your warm embrace, the scent of the wild roses. Rose Briar.
Rose Briar, oil, and enamel on canvas, is a large contemporary floral landscape painting measuring 200 x 100 x 3 cm. An expressionist background suggests the chaos and tangled nature of a wild sweet rose briar with an abundance of delicate pink roses suggesting the beautiful simplicity of nature. The untamed hedgerow signifies a movement toward chaos while the delicate petals and flowers give a focal point to the painting and sit juxtaposed against the thick expressionist undergrowth in the background. Gold flashes of dripped paint create depth as they catch and reflect light. Rose Briar is ready to hang
