brand new artist..never shown before...
once in a while a new artist comes along and really takes my breath away. this is anita rose. she has been painting in her closet for a number of years, not showing anyone beyond family.
when i saw her work my jaw dropped. watercolor is a medium that requires one to "work it and let it". generally my experience has been that an untrained newbie artist will have stiff work - or an overworked piece.
not anita rose.
anita is an intuitive painter - she puts paint down then watches and waits to "hear" what it says to her then she decides how to go from there. it's like she helps the watercolor paint itself - she a mere guide for creators from beyond the heavens. she is a conduit. its not easy letting that happen. i know i have looked for artists like her for years.
does this not look like the painting appear on its own accord? thats how i view it.
anita rose is a tender soul - quiet, unassuming, physically small in size.
if you saw her you might not even notice her. but the well of her spirit runs deep.
she genuinely wants good for all of her family, sweethearted to her core. she is even a poet. i love her deeply. you see, anita rose is my cousin.
please join me in welcoming her to the art world. love, lisa
