soul and purpose

"Through my paintings I hope to communicate a personal enthusiasm and respect for the natural world, thus encourage in others an active stewardship of same." -- JEANNE ILLENYE

Single Pink English Rose, still life oil painting, voluptuous rose, lingering morning dewdrops, soft sunshine, browned petals from late frost, nothin but pink series

Pink English Rose
4x4 inches / oil on panel
An early English rose captures the soft morning sun with lingering dewdrops in this delicate still life oil painting.  The browned edges of the petals reveal a late frost while the rose was still in bud form which only adds to its charm.

Absolutely beautiful!


Thank you SO much, Diana! Love adding the dried, brown edges to show signs of age and remind us of how fragile life is....
