This piece titled unrequited love was the first oil painting I finished. I painted it at the request of a lady I was involved with yet she left before it was finished. The symbolism of love in red and the single rose of black and white represented to me emotional and made a statement of even if love walks away there is beauty in the loss.. yin and yang black and white. The piece was inspired by the lack of black and white art at the local level, our bathroom was done in black and white and red, so my friend asked for a black and white with red painting. I chose the vases from a picture and the roses from the heart. This painting was a creation of love and was great fun creating as well as looking at.
Needles to say this painting is one I would like to sell… I hate to gesso and paint over such an original and unique piece. I originally posted this on my other blog and chose to share it here as this is my art blog.. 🙂
Thank you for stopping by I hope you enjoyed the visit and perhaps even smiled.
