I have lots of rose bushes in my gardens, but these are special. I call them my "wild red roses" because they started growing about 5 years after we moved in and I have no idea where they came from, because I never planted them! This piece was painted from life, alla prima style, on linen board.
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.
