I was asked to create images for a project on diversity and inclusivity. I pondered for weeks as to what to paint, and when I entered my studio, hearts began pouring out of me. I couldn't stop! LOVE is the universal language. It encompasses us all.
The original of "peaceful LOVE" was painted using taupe and silver metallic paints because of their gentleness and calming effect. I love this heart so much, I wanted to add various hues to it. So I shifted the color to steely blue in photoshop for this print.
Blue is calming and soothing--especially this shade. It reminds me of the "something blue" wedding tradition.
