A Rose for Ukraine


A Rose for Ukraine  16″ x 20″ oil on canvas board, framed by the artist

A Rose for Ukraine is a tribute to the victims of a war crime, who are valiantly struggling to save their people, their country, their culture. The rose is a gift, among other tokens of our solidarity for the Ukrainian cause of freedom. As do all world citizens, they deserve to live in peace. Peace needs to become another right, just as freedom and justice. The right to pursue happiness in peace.

The two bottles of pure blue and yellow pigment are from my father's studio, so they are personally meaningful to me. The blue balances the yellows and reds and of course, along with the sunflowers, represents the national colors of Ukraine. Here are a variety of substances, each responding to the light in its own way, just as we as individuals react to light differently. I wanted this painting to be lighter than some of my more recent still lives. The background seems to glow with light, bouncing it around and filling the air. It is the light of peace. It is the light of wisdom. A Still life is interesting because of what goes in and what goes out. The combination of items included can make us think. Sometimes it makes us feel. The rest is a delicious romp of color and the thrill of pushing paint. More still life paintings
