The Folds

I don’t think I ever shared this painting. It’s not great or anything, I know, and I’m not sure of any real meaning for it exactly but I found I was unusually interested in the petal folds of roses and other flowers. The folds are symbolic to me in a way, because I always think of something being hidden there, something terrible being covered and disguised by something beautiful and secretive.

  1. It’s beautiful, what medium do you use? You translate your thoughts into paintings very well.

      Thank you. I just use acrylic paints, normal ball point pens, stuff lying around…lol. I don’t have much money at hand to spend for projects, so I make due with what little I do have.

  2. Wow, the red is really brilliant (I love it when you use really bright colors with the darker ones). I noticed you have done quite a few paintings with flowers, then of course vines. I think whether we realize it or not, sometimes the things we are drawn to say a lot about us.

    It’s interesting, what you say about the folds. I like to think of how roses start out as these tiny little buds, then they grow thorns and more petals, almost like this beautiful but deadly suit of armor. I always think of it as protecting something vunlnerable underneath. I guess it could very well be a secret.
