Rose Bryant Original Painting "Two Lemons and a Lime"

One of the really neat things I enjoy about the painting process is the pleasant surprise when the varnish is applied. The layers of color are noticeably enhanced and intensified by the varnish. The contrasts are boosted. All things pull together. This 16x20 painting, "Two Lemons and a Lime", has so many layers in the reds that strong light makes it visually very rich. This painting has now been claimed by someone who is exploring her creative side. She loves and pursues photography and has taken painting classes. She is always in motion.... passionate about life, her family, and her work. I can easily see why the color in this painting spoke to her.

I hope you enjoy it as well.

Rose Bryant Original Painting "Girls on the Beach"

I just love the things summer brings. Neighbor gatherings in the backyard, outdoor concerts, dining with friends at sidewalk cafes. This group of gulls made such a nice visual... friends (perhaps) just hanging out. The painting is an 18x36 acrylic on canvas. It is one of 20 works in my solo show at The Works Bakery Cafe starting this Friday. The Works is a hopping place right in the heart of Market Square in the charming seacoast town of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. My show will be there August through October. Drop in for some color and a morsel on one of your summer outings.
Thank you for looking at my color... do pass it along to a friend!



Rose Bryant Original Paintings. "Big Sky Over the Marsh" at The Willow in August

SOLD Sometimes it is just a feeling, sometimes its a need for a color, and other times it is a desire to paint with big broad strokes. This painting started with all three. I knew I wanted a painting that would simply come out of me with ease... without hesitation or over evaluation. For this, the basic composition was determined and then the color was applied richly and loosely. Layers were added and scrubbed in for depth and texture... sometimes the physical action of moving my arm around is the best part of the process. "Big Sky Over the Marsh", is one of several landscapes that will be on exhibit in August at The Willow in downtown Exeter. It is 30x40 inches and sealed with a UV resistant varnish. The image is painted on all sides of the gallery wrapped canvas. Hope you enjoy the view!


Rose Bryant Original Paintings Petite Art in the Park

Yesterday I painted at the Seacoast Science Center at Odiorne Point State Park for the Petite Art in the Park Fundraiser. That same day a band out of Boston, "Entrain", played their evening as a part of the summer concert series. Wow... art, the ocean, sunlight, and "Entrain"... how cool is that? All the artists participating in the fundraiser created art 10x10 inches or smaller. The art show and sale event is this Sunday, July 12 from 11-3 at the Science Center. It is a charming fundraiser with a simple concept ... go out, enjoy the day at the ocean, and buy a piece of art for a flat $75 to support the Center. My little painting above is 6x8 inches and titled "Odiorne Point". Hope you can make it! Rose
