Heart Wrapped in Love

I started out without a plan for this piece. I had at first painted circles, that I really didn't like. So I left it for awhile. Then I started to see a human heart wrapped in love. I began to paint, just putting straight acrylic paint on and covering up the circles and adding to them. The process was muted at first and slow. Then a heart began to form and I worked within that. Then I highlighted it with white and added black, then the gold to represent being wrapped in love. I believe love gives us meaning, purpose, hope. When I was finished, I was much more pleased with the result.

I felt out what I wanted to paint. I worked intuitively, letting what I wanted to flow work out naturally. I let my emotions guide me and saw a heart with love wrapped around it, like gold. It wasn't a generic heart, but more like a human heart. It's about how love gives us hope, moves us, makes us real, and gives us purpose.
