24x36" original oil painting, SOLD

This painting has just been accepted into The Regional Show at The San Diego Art Institute. The show was juried by Susan Street of The Susan Street Gallery. The opening is on this Saturday night, October 13 from 5-7pm and will be up through mid-November. The theme of this piece is “opposites attract”. In using colors that are opposites on the color wheel, my intention was to create visual tension between the two figures that are connected as a result of juxtaposition and the “bridges” of color. The symbols and words scratched into the background represent the little unspoken electric zings that occur when opposites attract. I originally painted this piece for a show in Houston called "Opposites Attract". But I'm really pleased that it will be hanging here in San Diego first.
