Oil on linen, 9"x12"

A Light In the Dark

I really liked the way this rose glowed so brightly against the dark background.

- Finalist, February, 2018- The Gateway International Painting Competition
Judge's Comment: "In this little picture we feel the artist’s reverence for the compelling beauty of a white rose in light. I’m not certain how anyone could see this painting and ever look at a rose in the same way again. I believe that this is our job as artists: to reflect back to all the inherent beauty in the abundance of life around us!"
