I love my gardens, especially the roses. One of the perks of tending roses is bringing them in to enjoy while they are in bloom. I painted these freshly cut garden roses in the alla prima style. This wet on wet technique energizes me, and helps me to achieve a loose, fresh feel to my work. This painting is on oil primed linen affixed to archival Gatorboard. It come varnished and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Pamela

Pamela Blaies unexpectedly discovered her passion for art. A move with her family put her children in sad spirits, so to cheer them up she painted murals on their bedroom walls. With time, she began looking forward to painting more and more. She works in “alla prima” style, a technique in which artists don’t wait for paint to dry and work with layers of wet paint. The effects of light and shadows in the world greatly influence her work.
