"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.

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.
