Ready to Hang
Painted during a period where the play of light and shadow really fascinated me. This painting uses flat and metallic paints and contrasts the free spirit of humanity with the stark confining world we build for ourselves. The shadows on her face come from a barred window.
Rose Ayala is a California native born at the base of the Sierra Nevadas in Nevada City. She attended SAIC and received an AA from Ananda College of Living Wisdom with an emphasis in Inspirational Arts. Her 'real' art education has come from her travels in daily life throughout it all; from WWOOFing in Ireland, to living in a spiritual community in northern Oregon, and all the multitude of trips in between. She gains much of her inspiration from art/music festivals, nature, and introspection. Rose loves the interaction that art can provide within a community and will jump at any opportunity to be a face painter for children's events. Most of her art is created in her secluded studio in a California State Park, where she currently lives with her ranger sister.
