So, I finished the second piece for my new client, Vi, this weekend, and she should be picking it up to take it to its new forever-home.
It was an interesting piece, because she wanted me to depict my own idea of love.
I took a 30”x40” canvas and threw down some acrylic paint. I painted the four hearts in the four corners with words that are significant to love for me with words. Yes, there’s a green heart, which green represents jealousy, which I think’s such a thing as healthy jealousy…if there’s trust in a relationship. Let’s face it, when we’re in a relationship, we don’t go blind. At the end of the day, you have to know who you’re going to bed with…and, your other has to trust he/she knows you’re coming home to bed with he/she. The fire and ice rose brings it all together: A. because I love fire and ice roses, and B. fire and ice’re polar opposites. Fire, passion. Ice, disagreements.
I broke a painting rule, I think, putting white paint on a white canvas; however, the word’s “Pure”. It shows in person.
Also, there's no wrong way to hang it.
Anyways, I’m proud of it.
Be good to each other.
