I can’t tell you how long I’ve been working on this painting, it’s been a long while. There are many layers, concepts, colors, mediums, and emotions buried behind the finished piece.
The beginning of 2022 has been rough. More sorrow and grief. That’s why I wanted to create something happy and cheerful. Creating art is the best therapy, for me. I suppress. I hold it all in, always have. I know it’s not healthy, but it’s all I know. I’m terrified of what would happen if I let it all out in a physical way, it wouldn’t be pretty.
But I think this painting is very pretty, and deep. The texture is hard to see in the photo, it really adds to the depth of the work, so much more than meets the eye.
I wish you a very happy Valentines Day, love your people, and your pets while you can! 😊❤️
