"Heart on Sleeve," 24 x 20 inches, mixed media on canvas, 2010, $455
Inspired by a box of Valentine's chocolates someone brought to the studio once the candy was shared.
The photo is limited, but when you are up close to the painting, different things show through the paint. All the collage items have to do with a single gal struggling with her life not happening the way she thought. Dragon, watch, fitness, energy, meditation, all types of ideas show when you look carefully at the actual painting.
I was that single gal before Andy came sneaking into my life. Andy and I were friends for over a year, each with different people. The first time we met, I thought "Wow! He's cute! Yeah, well, he's in a totally different life stage than me, so forget it." Well, although there is an age difference, Andy and I still work very well together. So well, that when I mentioned the age difference during my cousin's inquisition (joke), she said that she always knew that I would be with an older man! Andy and I are going on three years...and he's stuck with me (cue the old Huey Lewis song from the 1980s).
