Little Thing Called Love


8x6" oil on canvas, SOLD

I've been trying to write something, anything about this painting for way too long. There's construction on the house next door this summer and I'm afraid anything I would write would be pretty ugly given my state of mind and the pounding in my head from the relentless hammering. So, since Neil Young wrote a song with the same title as this painting I thought this might be a bit more inspired:
Only love puts a tear in your eye
Only love makes you hypnotized
Only love makes you choose
Only love brings you the blues.
--Neil Young
OK, I didn't say uplifting....

Funny, that's the same expression I have when I watch a shirts vs. skins game of basketball.

Awesome work as usual! Always a pleasure to see what you come up with next.

He does look rather dumbstruck, but his heart is not broken. So I'd say he's ahead of the game. (for now :)) I usually leave your blog with a sense of awe, so I know how he feels.
