JEANNE ILLENYE Nest Amidst Wilting Roses

Nest Amidst Wilting Roses
8x8 inches / oil on panel
Available at Howard / Mandville Gallery
There’s something so intriguing about the backside of a flower...where the magic of the bloom emerges, unfurling it’s complicated and delicate splendor. Here I found that very same excitement in my roses and chose to paint their velvety petals just as they were, softly wilting and bruised as a gentle reminder of nature’s transient beauty.
burnished silver gilded hardwood frame / boxwood leaf & berry edge approx. 14x14 inches
