A Cross and Roses by Anthea  Slade

Currently unavailable for purchase

A Cross and Roses was taken on the 4 April 2010 when visiting Daylesford Endota Spa Retreat. Thought this was a beautiful image for Easter.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.

    Actually a very stunning and powerful image Anthea – all the more so for occurring naturally – the tuft of grass at the foot of the cross adds something special to this as well. I love this!

  • Oh thank you lianne for this gorgeous comment. It was a natural beauty indeed and cannot believe the composition and the way it all fitted together. Moved me greatly. Hope you had a very happy Easter.

    beautiful image Anthea, simple but powerful. The roses remind of the Crown of Thorns and yet at the same time symbolize the Love of Christ

  • Such a wonderful interpretation of my painting Sable. Thank you for the way you see and express this image.
