Painting on display at Art works RVA gallery, May Juried show

“Cold Bouquet,” 24×24″, acrylic on canvas

Showing in the juried all-media show at Art Works RVA gallery. May 26th through June 16th. ✨
This painting is titled “Cold Bouquet”; 24×24” acrylic on canvas. The subject for this painting was a bouquet that I was surprised with over this past winter. I’d decided to paint it when it had started to wither. I included falling petals to capture its decline, in the spirit of memento mori, to “remember death”—in order to remember and appreciate the preciousness of life.
