Framed in gold floater: 62 x 50 x 2 in.
"I started 'Roses are Red, Violets are Blue' from one of my favorite color studies. It was so much fun to paint without direction or subject in mind but just playing with blocks on top of blocks of colors, waiting to see what emerges.
On such a large painting I had to bring out the big knife! The painters scraping tool courtesy of Ace Hardware. The first layers were bold and rich and created the movement underneath but as I worked layering various lighter shades opposite of the direction I had started, these beautiful red petals appeared and 'Roses are Red, Violets are Blue' was born." -- Gia Rose
