"love never dies"
mixed media on 20x24 canvas
I am in love with this painting! I have to say that it is my personal favorite of anything I have done thus far. I used a limited palette of just black and white with some red. There are a couple of other undone paintings underneath. I just didnt like what was happening so I gessoed over it and started new.
Here is the first new layer done with just foam brushes . . .
I thought I would have trouble with all the space but I am getting used to painting larger. I used mostly foam brushes and a palette knife. My favorite part was adding the white drizzles!
The words always seem to come to me as I paint. And these words fit the piece perfectly. Last night Lou hung it up on the wall in our living room. It will be making its way to my etsy shop soon.
I am sharing this piece over at Paint Party Friday. Its always a great time over there!
I am already planning another black and white piece similar to this except I am thinking a burst of yellow hearts this time! I do love some yellow with grey.
Now its time for some ice cream! lol
(seriously though, when is it NOT time for ice cream??)
