“Orange Poppies on Blue Texture” ©Jill Rosoff 2010, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, SOLD
This one is the orange iceland poppies, wonderfully simple in structure but busy with textures, contrasted simply on the blue textured background, my signature circle pattern. Not elaborate, yet rich and focused in the juxtaposition of textures and colors, with a bit of a change-up of my theme of more intricacy in the flowers on a plain blue background. I think this one could be seen as the complimentary image to the series represented by “One More for Spring” from last year.

“Little Green Apples” ©Jill Rosoff 2o1o, 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″, $75.00
Here’s a little ode to my new favorite fruit! I just showed at the Balboa Island Art Walk on Sunday May 16th in Newport Beach, CA. I had my new apple-green market umbrellas up for shade, and they also served as a landmark, a way for everyone who I’d invited to easily find me. Then for a happily clever tie-in I had green apples to give away at my display. What I couldn’t have expected was the kids who came up to me all day with big eyes asking so sweetly if they could have an apple! It was truly fun to say ‘yes!’ and see the looks on their faces as they picked out the apple they wanted. Their parents’ expressions were pretty great too. Later on in the day, a fellow artist-on-display walked by my set up and literally said, “Aha!”, that he’d seen people eating green apples the whole length of the show and now he knew why.
Huge thank yous to everyone who stopped to peruse my work, and especially to the new members of my Collectors roster! And last but not least, Welcome to those of you who will now be receiving my show and event notices via email! Thanks!
