Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Creating happy, serene, inspirational paintings since 1975.

You can call it purple, or violet, but it does have a bit of red in it too! The antique purple rose shown in this painting was a gift from my friend, who happens to also be a florist. You can visit my website to see the demonstration of this painting.

I really loved the softness and light violet of this rose. The petals turned from a light violet to green on the outside petals, near their edges.

This painting will create a huge impact within any room that it is displayed.

My florist friend comes along with some very nice finds. Yes, the variety was very fragrant, and I only wish I could grow these. I have painted from the few bushes I try not to kill, but this one was from my friend. And it is a true beauty.

This is a 30" x 40" gallery wrapped on canvas oil painting.

This is a HAPPY painting, one that will bring Joy to those that view it. There is powerful healthy emotions that come from seeing Flowers and Art like this. See my bio for the science behind it, but essentially, happiness, inspiration, peace and calm come from this form of art.

More about the painting

I use a 400 year old Flemish technique that involves painting in layers. This produces superior results both in the effects that are found in the work, and it's longevity.

Close up views will show the depth and details not usually found in paintings today. I've also included one that is very close to scale, and gives you a good idea of it's size compared to some furnishings. This antique purple rose painting is gallery wrapped, so it is ready to hang, no need for a frame.

I know you will enjoy hanging this in your home as much as I did in creating it!
