"The painting symbolizes love," says artist Hilary Gomes. She captures two delicate pink roses from a visit to the Filoli Gardens in California. Starting with a raw umber underpainting, she then completed the piece with an indirect oil painting method and finished with a varnish coat. This unframed piece is on an acid-free archival Deluxe Professional oil-primed Linen Centurion medium-weight textured linen panel that is cleanly wrapped and adhered to a solid 3mm MDF wood board.

Bay Area artist Hilary Gomes creates classical renditions of flowers in gardens. “I paint ephemeral images of blooming roses as a vessel for the nature of impermanence,” says Hilary. "My alluring contemporary garden compositions dream into the beauty of floral painting traditions. Painting is in flux and alive similar to observing nature." Hilary studied at Ruth Aswawa School of the Arts High School in San Francisco and then earned her BFA from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Art and Science in New York City. She received her MFA in Painting from The University of Iowa. While in New York, a defining moment for her came from viewing Henri Fantin-Latour's paintings in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Teaching informs Hilary's 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'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.”

What a beautiful painting I now have in my home! It turned out to be even more stunning "in the flesh" than in the pictures on the website. I love the soft colors of the roses against against the deep and shades of greens. The roses remind me of a family or a group of friends hanging out together, and every rose has its own personality. My favorite part of this painting is that it has a very spiritual and loving quality.
