Artist Rebecca Rose
Artist Rebecca Rose is a Washington, DC based artist whose focus is on healing through artistic transformation by painting on both the human body and the traditional canvas. To Rose, body painting is about self love and self acceptance, about being comfortable in the skin you are in - its an echoing of the subconscious through the arts. "I've painted many people, and everyone I've painted has something they feel insecure about. Body painting is not only a physical transformation, but a way of seeing yourself in a new light. It can be therapeutic, as the paint loves every body. The real magic isn't found in the finished painting, but in the process of the painting... I love painting people as there's an openness, a sense of trust and vulnerability, often with complete strangers. A beautiful reminder that we are all connected and we are all human." - Rose.
With traditional canvas painting, Rose has a distinct style and fondness for painting bright, bold, dreamlike images. Rose's large contemporary paintings reflect a classical nature with a sense of modern impressionism. She is a hopeless romantic who is intrigued by human relationships and paints images of romances and friendships. Rose's paintings focus on the positive in people, and in life.

"Trust the Universe: All the distractions,
all the "I need more time" and the "I'm not ready", are understandable, but
only for a short while. The truth is, there's never a "right time" or a
"completely ready". There comes a time when one simply hopes for the best,
closes their eyes, pinches their nose and jumps into the abyss. Its time to
close your eyes, let go and jump."

"Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives."
