A Rose Is
Acrylic & pastel on wood panel

2007

This work is from the series Dear Gertrude Stein (An Open Letter To Gertrude Stein, Except, Paintings, And, Sigh, The Timing's Off). Gertrude Stein's famous quote "A rose is a rose is a rose" has often been interpreted to mean things are what they are.
