‘Roses Have Become Me’ (Acrylic Paints)
 The two paintings have roses–not only because Rose is my middle name, but because of the sentence ‘Rose is a rose is a rose’ from the 1913 poem ‘Sacred Emily’ by Gertrude Stein. The beauty of flowers has always inspired me and my artwork. In ‘Roses Have Become Me’ the girl’s eyes are covered with flowers and the stems are around her neck.  The painting is a metaphor for the innocence that stems from the eyes–from the thorns and harshness from life, over time we can only become soft like flowers.
