Living near Southern California flower fields makes it possible and affordable to enjoy fresh flowers in our home every week. Which means there are also bouquets of wilted and dried up flowers on the way to the recycling bin each week. And every time I see those bouquets of old dried out flowers I think of Grandmothers. There faces somewhat dry and wrinkled; their cheeks not so rosy; color a little faded. Still there is a knowing beauty about them saying “Oh no, not yet. I have more to share.” That’s what I tried to capture in this piece.
To create Grandma Roses, I used a combination of multi-layered digital photo painting, sculpted archival paper, pastels, acrylics and watercolor. The 23"x29" piece is framed with acid-free, floating mats under museum glass. Hanging hardware is in place on the black dimensional gallery frame.
Also included with the original is a Certificate of Authenticity and a photo of the artist creating Grandma Roses. Prints are also available.
