He Loves Me, Palette knife roses
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
This painting started out as a study of complementary colors, mostly shades of red and green. I had more orange and blue in it also. It quickly became something that resembled roses and so I played that idea up with the shadows. I love the lively knife work, you can sense the energy and fast movement I used as I applied the thick layers of paint!
