" I Heart You Girl"

5"x7"
acrylic on hardboard
I worked really hard at getting the lighting to show in just the right way so you could see the heart at first glance.  Ever since I finished the first I heart you painting, which was a male, I knew I would eventually paint the female version. So here she is.

"Girl Behind the Mask"

5"x7"
acrylic on hardboard
I am still playing around with masks and pattern.  I've had this mask for awhile now.  I was always going to make something out of it, I guess I did.... a painting.

"The Joker & Three Bells"

5"x7"
acrylic on hardboard
In this painting I get to use my favorite color, red.  I have been playing around with lighting and decided to back light the figure, which seemed appropriate since the portrait seems staged.  I painted most of the sequence during a long conversation with my mother in law. (Who says I  can't multitask?) I had a teacher in high school that was passionate about pattern.  I guess this piece would make her proud.
