I have been working on this painting for the last few weeks off and on. I am trying to put more definition in my figure and less definition in the background.
The White Rose
30 x 40
by Cathy Hegman
The White Rose was a group that printed anonymous leaflets and led a graffiti campaign from 1942 -1943 in opposition of Adolf Hitler and his regime and the atrocities they were committing against the Jews. It was a non violent, intellectual resistance group in Nazi Germany. The group was comprised of students and their philosophy professor. Most of them were arrested and killed. The White Rose members are now honored as heroes that stood up to the Third Reich in the face of certain death. These people saw the horrors and took a stand, we should all be so brave. I would like to honor them as well. I often think about how complacent we can become in life and then I read about people like this and I am led to incorporate them into my work.
I wish everyone a Blessed Easter, and I hope we never forget the sacrifices made for us.
Thank you for reading my blog, I hope it in some way helps and interests you about art and painting.
