EXPRESSIONS OF LOVE
New Works By Lorraine Schiller & Abigail Kreuser
Lincoln Rose Gallery is proud to present
Expressions of Love
A brand new Vibrant and Delightful series of paintings by local artist Lorraine Schiller.
For centuries, roses have been a beautiful symbol of love for many cultures. In this new series of paintings I am inspired by stories and thoughts that express love in unique ways. The bright colors and fast brushstrokes remind us that these bold expressions of love are oftentimes spontaneous and instinctive, but are truly what makes our world a better place.
Complimenting this exhibit will be a beautiful collection of Rose Photography by Abigail Kreuser.

A message from the artist…
I’ve been creating art my whole life. I have worked with countless media, however, it wasn’t until working with encaustics that I felt I had finally found my niche. With encaustics, you need to absolutely surrender to imperfection. It is essentially painting with melted beeswax, and then fusing (or melting) the layers to the previous layer. You never know the results you will have, and each piece is one of a kind. You will notice the drifting-like effects with some of the colors in the paintings. This effect comes from the fusing process, which is a wild card each and every time.
I am inspired by nature and everything in it. I have two amazing children and a husband who also share my love of the outdoors. We emphasize the arts in our family and inspire our children to take risks and create with whatever is available, from pine cones to canvas. During the day I am a local middle school art teacher. By night, after the kids are sleeping, I hop myself up on coffee and create.
I hope this artwork inspires you to take risks and find your own means of creation. Maybe it’s visually, mentally, spiritually, or physically. Maybe it’s with pine cones. Whatever you do, do it with love.
