Cover Rose” oil on canvas, 48 x 36, by Jamie Camacho, a Rhode Island artist. He writes: “My work is a search for beauty, for a light that reveals emotions through colors and shapes that will suggest interpretations connected with everyone’s history and maybe personal expectations and taste. This is my search, this is the way I access and propose my own visual experience for the world’s eyes.” jaime.camacho@cox.net
