Plants & Flowers by Yvette Molina seen at Rosewood Sand Hill, Menlo Park - Bough
The wall of Rosewood Sand Hill's reception area has a piece titled "Bough." The piece is oil on aluminum by Yvette Molina and the "bough” is a branch of a tree, or more specifically, the main branch. This Old English word accurately describes Yvette Molina’s painting on aluminum. Molina paints with the precision and curiosity of a 18th Century botanist. Her “portraits” of various plants and flowers come primarily from her own garden and immediate neighborhood in Oakland, California, where she lives and works. Yvette Molinaʹs saturated paintings of hazy forest‐scapes document their uncanny energy and fragility.  Multiple layers of oil paint and transparent glaze are used to create luminous meditations of far away lands.
