Art: The Mindful Rose/Sold by Artist Cynthia M Guajardo
The Mindful Rose is a new painting that I just completed. The inspiration for this piece came from a photograph that I took last summer of a varigated rose. I knew from the beginning that I didn't want to paint a photo-realistic painting of the rose and wanted a graphic contemporary feel to the flower. I simplified the photograph in Photoshop, chose my palette and transferred the image to canvas. It is quite different from how I normally work and required hours of work to get the crisp color and exact shapes that I wanted. It was quite meditative, hence the title of the painting, "The Mindful Rose". This painting is chronicled in my blog if you would like to see the progress of the painting from start to finish.
