Girl with Pearls & Red Roses
A young woman on the cusp of change, the Girl With Pearls & Red Roses is a portrait using a minimal palette and high contrast to focus the viewer on the importance of the moment. The world around her disappears as she summons the courage to look up and face what is before her. Although afraid, she is resolved, and we know this is the deep breath that comes before a courageous moment, and ultimately, freedom. For me, red roses (Particularly this variety) symbolise courage & freedom. The pearls symbolise the wisdom and endurance that can come from suffering. She was initially created in digital format, before being carefully reproduced in oils on canvas. Original Oil Painting by Emma Miller. 30 x 40 x 4cm Box Canvas. Signed. Prints Available.
