Stanley Bielin, Tea Rose, oil on linen 5"x5" 1985
Roger Brown has contributed this still life, saying:
"I bought this painting from Rice Fine Arts in 1985. The very subtle effects of light and atmosphere (and there is a very palpable "atmosphere" around and behind the objects in the painting,) the muted but rich colors, make it one of the most satisfying still lifes I have seen. You really have to look at this painting for it to reveal itself fully. The small scale of the piece allowed the painter to achieve his intentions to a degree of perfection that would be very difficult to pull off in a larger painting."
