Rosanna Johnson "The Date" at the Joyful Jewel 3-13-14

"The Date"
Rosanna Johnson
Acrylic on Canvas, 13" x 7", in frame "16 1/2" x 10 1/2"
Original, $50

This painting has been sold, yet I found it so striking that I decided to feature it anyway.  The piece is included in part of the poem I wrote for this year's Vision & Voice (which you can hear on March 23! along with the writings of 23 others).  Rosanna Johnson titled the painting "The Date" and I think there are many layers of meaning in this muted colored scene.  Do you see the face in the background and the wine glass?  Rosanna says in her artist statement, "My work focuses on simple subjects to highlight the beauty of things often overlooked in society.  The works often employ a "thinning" technique to create a translucent quality."  I think the face illustrates well what she means by the thinning technique.
