One would think that after attending a beautiful wedding all day, I’d be inspired to create some girly “ode to love” drawing or even use the wedding colors in today’s piece. But when I headed into the studio reluctantly this evening, I sat down, pulled out a mini panel and thought “gold and blue”.
Then I thought “lame, those are my stupid high school colors and I totally hated that damn place.” To which my brain replied to itself, “Really self? They are also just cool colors. But I see your point..”
So I remembered that somewhere in my studio was a box of old matches… aha! And decided to embed that bit into the painting as an homage to my ire towards the school so that I could be okay with using the colors, let it dry, et voila! I had a quick painting on a mini canvas panel (5×7 in).
*UPDATE: This piece is SOLD. Thanks!*
