The season for "Love"

Just in time for Valentines Day, my new painting "Love" is finally finished! Prints are available for sale on my Etsy site.

Lately I have been drawn towards artists with an illustrative style that use bright colors. Over and over again I look to them for inspiration. I've finally decided to embrace what keeps calling to me and try my ideas on canvas.

original sketch
Most of my years in art school I strove to capture realistic figureative art and have really enjoyed painting portraits of people in a realistic style. But lately, I have been thinking about painting the essence of people rather than painting a realistic portrait.
