Hearts on Gold – 8×8
“To be kind is more important than to be right. Many times, what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks but a heart that listens.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Oh my heart 🙂
I have loved painting these – I am sure there will be more. I have loved painting of love in a more anatomical way. So fun.
Hearts on Grey – 8×16
“Her heart sank into her shoes as she realized at last how much she wanted him. No matter what his past was, no matter what he had done. Which was not to say that she would ever let him know, but only that he moved her chemically more than anyone she had ever met, that all other men seemed pale beside him.”
– F. Scott Fitzgerald “A New Leaf”
Flappers – Prohibition Series
March 25, 2019
I spent part of this weekend planning the rest of my Prohibition series. There will be 14 paintings in all (including one set of 9 6×6 (two of which are already done and posted here), one triptych of the vague flappers featured here dancing the night away, and various other musicians, scenes, and 1920’s fun.
I thoroughly enjoyed researching some 1920’s era photographs for these pieces. After planning, I did get the canvases prepped and the flappers basic placement blocked in. Sooo fun!!! Stay tuned!
