Connie Rose oil portrait paintings are available by commission or appointment at her studio. Rose believes portraits are a memory captured and can give an enticing glimpse into the nature of the sitter and who they are.
A good painting can go deeper than a photograph by adding to the image in a way that a photograph cannot. Perhaps this has to do with the touch of the human hand; the time and concentration it takes to paint realistically whilst still allowing the image to be recognized as a painting. It’s the small flicks of the brush that can cast truth on a canvas, that extra speckle of light, that sparkle in the eye, each brushstroke of color carefully considered. It is special.
