photo by Jennifer Rose

Jennifer Rose takes charming close-up photos of garden flowers to produce an uplifting effect. Her intention is that the photos may be used in meditation to focus the mind on positive natural energy. The artist invites you to a free reception on Friday, January 9, from 5 to 7pm.
