Rose #3

"Rose #3"
24" x 24"
Oil on gessoed panel 
It was evening when I found her yawning into her sleeve.  She had sung her last lullaby and kissed dew drops onto the buds tipping the branches of her sinewy stem. 

I enjoy making square paintings. The corners become important, and need to be different in shape, value and edge. Placing a round flower in a square format can be successful if there's a sense of motion around the center, not just like a dart stuck in the center, with no chance to meander.

Thank you for visiting,
