Love – Acrylic on Paper – 9×12 inches
In honor of Valentine’s Day I decided to paint something with a theme, of sorts. I used three colors here: Mars Black, Titanium White and a metallic blue. Unfortunately the metallic blue doesn’t photograph well. There is a bit of a shimmer in the blue I like that you can’t see here. I am enjoying painting with the black paint and another color, especially blue.
I mentioned that I was having a bunch of paintings framed and I got them back this weekend. I have them all on my dining room wall. I think they look great. However, I can’t photograph them due to massive glare. I did not use anti-glare glass as it is expensive. As it was, I spent over £200 on framing and mounting 16 paintings and mounting 2 paintings wrapped in cellophane. As great as they all look, I can’t justify framing any more paintings at this time, only mounting them ready to be framed. If I ever end up selling my work, it will be easier to ship if they are mounted only. (It might happen one day.) In the meantime, I will just carry on painting!
