A Nice Rose'


A Nice Rose' (for the apocalypse), oil on canvas, 21 by 12 inches.  Completed September 2022.

Part of a series which is meant to confront the hypocrisy of our behavior without making any person the villain.  I hear a lot of angry talk lately.  I hear a lot of threats.  Somehow I get the picture that there are those who support armed action to correct rising fuel prices.  I also get the picture that those who advocate such a radical approach think that it can be done without affecting the supply of red wine (or any other taken-for-granted luxury).  Anyway, the painting is meant to induce a smile.  It is, after all, hyperbolic--I think.
