"I'd like to convey the poetic spiritual beauty, dreamy love, and grace of roses in nature," shares artist Hilary Gomes. Three blooming roses nestled amongst leaves and thorns. Soft petals glow in the sunshine while protected by sharp crimson spikes. Hilary paints vintage traditional styles of roses reminiscent of the past. Her process starts with classical raw umber underpainting techniques, traditional oil painting glazing techniques, and completes the painting with varnish.

Belmont, California

Artist Hilary Gomes paints small-scale classical garden compositions with a focus on roses. “Painting roses is a metaphor for love. I aim to convey the poetic spiritual beauty and grace of nature,” says Hilary. As a native to the California Bay Area, she began her journey in drawing and painting attending the Ruth Aswawa School of the Arts High School in San Francisco, CA. She then earned her B.F.A. from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Art and Science in New York City. While in New York, a defining moment for her art inspiration came from viewing Henri Fantin-Latour's paintings in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She continued her passion for art and received her MFA in Painting from The University of Iowa. She stays active as a practicing painter and professor, stating that teaching informs her art practice. She has been a full-time tenured female faculty at Foothill College in Los Altos, CA from 2001 to the present and chairs the department of art. Hilary teaches oil and watercolor painting, color and design, and life drawing. Hilary's art studio is on the first floor of her home looking out into her garden. “My clean and environmentally solvent-free studio is filled with light, house plants, a large standing easel, and a small table easel. I also paint outdoors in my backyard with the sounds of nature and fresh air.”
