The painting isn't finished yet but it is coming along. If you remember I collaged a bunch of gelli print scraps.
Then I gessoed them and did some embossing in white over all this color. Finally I free hand cut some hearts from this.
I love how my hearts hint at color but don't fight the colors in the background too much.
Now I am at the study stage. I put this piece down in the livingroom and I keep looking at it trying to decide what it needs. I don't want to over do it.
I definitely think the lowest open heart, the one that says I love you, needs to be painted inside red.
Will show you the finished piece once it is done!
