Rose De Paradise is inspired by botanical gardens The Rosaries and the place Paradise where I grew up in Bergen Norway. Rose de Paradise is a Tempera and watercolor painting painted in 2015. The painting connects Paradise , The Universe and the Floral "kingdom" in its spirituality.
Believing that surroundings can influence one` s health and mind, Painter and Physical Therapist Aase Birkhaug has combined her two passions by painting Roses for a soothing effect on humans.
Having fallen in love with flowers, nature and painting from early age, it was only natural to merge these factors together at some point, and by combining the aesthetic beauty of botany with her skills as a painter.
It is documented that colors have an effect on the sensory system, and some years ago I made the waiting room in my physiotherapy office into an exhibition for my paintings, so I discovered that it influenced the patients mental state.
My paintings are regularly described as very soft and mild. The color combinations I use are tastefully and delicately fused to make a motif that can be described as very soothing to the eye.
Since march 2016 I have received 79 international Art awards , and International Art Prizes for my Rose Paintings.
