Acrylic Rose

Acrylic on 5x7 archival canvas panel.
Still searching the different avenues of expressing an image in paint. This is my attempt at impact. It's a rose from my backyard. The surrounding dark makes the flower leap out and causes the background to dissolve into leaf like shapes. This invites the viewer to hang around for closer inspection....hopefully.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way , the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


  1. Dean, This is just lovely. Just perfect. I've never tried to paint a rose, I'll get brave one day and give it a try. Thank you for your nice comment on my blog. Barb

  2. Hey, Dean! I like this one a lot! It moves, for me, and those background shapes do indeed make leaves, and echo the rhythm of the rose petals. It's a nice, lively, inviting wake-up song in my day. Yum! P.S. I have painted a rose or two over the years; find them difficult, and completely admire and love yours.

  3. Hi, Barb. Thanks for stopping in. Glad you liked the rose.

  4. Hi, Eileen...Great to "see" you again. Thanks for the very supportive words.
    I just visited your new blog and it really looks great!
