Description We dream sweet dreams at night, because that is a glimpse of heaven, and the only real peace we will ever know, until god comes and takes us in his arms. Roses are a beautiful expression of the love he continually displays for us every day. I again used my favorite medium to express the beauty that roses give. I used the colored pencil burnished technique on a 9x12 strathmore bristol smooth finish paper. I took photographs of my subject matter for reference, and designed a better composition from them.
Jeffrey Arter, shelby Member Since December 2007 Artist Statement I have been interested in art all of my life. I majored in art in high school, and then went on to major at Ohio State University in drawing-painting, recieving a B.F.A. Degree. Since college, I have put continual personal study into fine arts, and techniques in art. I love colored pencil techniques, and "purity" in color, as well as "realism". I enjoy an addition of a "decorative" quality in my art as well. I hope to continually add pieces to my gallery as I create.
