24x36” Oil on Wood

"Briar Rose" is a whimsical oil on panel that beckons viewers into a fantastical nocturne, where dream and reality are interwoven with a lyrical grace. The scene is set under a crepuscular sky, where a crescent moon casts a gentle glow over an enchanted landscape, lending the work an otherworldly luminescence.

At the heart of the painting, a young maiden, the embodiment of Briar Rose herself, dances upon a winding, checkered ribbon that swirls out like a melody from the bell of a gramophone nestled within a stone tower. Her dress, adorned with a delicate floral pattern, flows with her movement, capturing the innocence and joy of a soul untouched by time.

The tower, stoic and steeped in mystery, features a solitary window from which a bewitching character emerges, spinning the golden thread that guides our protagonist in her dance. This enigmatic figure adds an element of folklore and hints at the unseen forces that may shape our destinies.

Encircling the scene is a thicket of roses, their vibrant reds a stark contrast to the verdant greens, symbolizing the beauty and peril that lie just beyond the safety of our known paths. This juxtaposition of peril and beauty speaks to the heart of the Briar Rose tale—a journey through trials to find awakening and revelation.

The painting is a contemplation of themes such as the passage from innocence to experience, the intertwining of fate and freedom, and the awakening of one’s innermost self. "Briar Rose" is not just a visual delight but a portal to the storied depths of the subconscious, a perfect piece for collectors who seek resonance and story in their art.
