The Colour of Love


The_colour_of_love_web This is the canvas that I was talking about in my last post…..I finished it last night.  I made it for a special art friend of mine who loves rusty things & this style of imagery.  Made from paint, gause & rusty bits of metal, it is approx 9" square.  I wrote on the RHS in rust coloured chalk, which looked great until I sprayed it with fixative.  Then I went over it in beeswax pencil, which hardly had any impact at all.  I wanted it to be a bit more prominant than it is, but this was as bold as I could get it without resorting to paint & a liner brush, which I wasn’t keen to do.  The heart on the bottom is an ‘Op Shop’ find donated by Abby.  The text reads….’In our life, there is a single colour that provides inspiration for life & art.  The colour is love.’  It was abridged from Paul Cezzane.  I LOVE this image, it is of ‘mature’ lovers….not a wispy stick insect with gorgeous blonde hair blowing in the breeze kissing some hunk with 2 days growth (WHO EVER convinced a woman THAT was sexy?????)…….our society presents passion & love as belonging to the young…….nay I say, nay!!
