I find plenty of inspiration in all the hoopla surrounding Valentines Day: the persuasion, the wooing, the seduction, the moment the earth shifts and, of course, the aftermath. All ingredients of a great love story. The backgrounds of my paintings are thick, saturated pigment mixed with a wax medium and applied like frosting with a palette knife. I draw back into the paint adding words, symbols and sketches and, in this painting there are little hidden love notes scratched into the paint as well. Clearly, I have a penchant for whimsical, narrative and slightly twisted art. And an uncontrollable fondness for the color red.
