JUROR Howard Rose has been painting in oils since 1989. He teaches privately and at The Art League of Long Island, the National Art League in Douglaston and has given many workshops at The Art Guild. “It is an exciting journey to become an artist and see the world through an artist’s eye. I love the challenge of turning an everyday scene into a successful and exciting painting.”
