About Okay Bouquet No 3

Lush stems of gorgeous coral-coloured roses play against a deep blue and white background. This is Jahn Page. His delightfully fresh, modern paintings are rendered in a bright palette. The Hamilton Ontario artist signature broad gestural markings in blues and pinks float across the canvas and draw the viewer’s eye. One of a series.

“Nearly all of my neighbors in Hamilton have these big, beautiful wild roses growing everywhere. When setting up this painting I knew the roses themselves and the Positive Gestures were going to be vibrant and as colorful as possible because I wanted it to feel like an explosion of movement. “ Jahn Page
