8″x10″ image size, matted and framed with plexiglass, acrylic and colored pencil on matte board, Limited Edition Prints available
My love affair with all things heart shaped continues. This image implies a beginning, hinting that the rest of the visual alphabet would follow. However, even with the burgeoning potential implicit in the format, it may remain an isolated symbol. (Who knows?)
I desired to combine a stylized yet eerily realistic heart, rendered in the context of a children’s picture book. I also wanted to create a totally red painting.
I sealed the 8″ x 10″ piece of matte board with acrylic, both sides and edges. I added some colored pencil to flesh out the design, but it didn’t adhere well so the whole thing is predominantly acrylic.
