Contemporary Fine Art Original Painting, A Rose Is

This is an original acrylic painting of a pink rose floating on a blue surface. It is painted on a wood panel that I built completely from a piece of plywood I bought from the hardware store. I am a full time studio artist based out of Rochester, NY and my favorite method of making my art is by starting from the very beginning with raw materials like plywood, pine boards, canvas on a roll, and then building my own supports for the painting I have in mind. I work directly from life, my imagination or from photos that I have taken myself. This painting’s rose was given to one of my roommates and she happened to leave it in the kitchen.

A Rose Is

Acrylic on wood panel
Rina Miriam Drescher

From the series Dear Gertrude Stein. Gertrude Stein’s famous quote “A rose is a rose is a rose” has often been interpreted to mean things are what they are.

This wood canvas was 100% built by me, by hand (using hand tools). This work is signed on the back & ready to hang!

This painting was exhibited in the exhibition Poems We Didn’t Write, The Blue Guitar Gallery, Easthampton, MA, USA April 11 – 30 2009
