Love many things, for therein lies the true strength,
and whosoever loves much performs much,
and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.
Vincent Van Gogh
The Gift of Love - "il dono d'amore"
I am so excited to learn that my "il dono d'amore" set will be featured as the
"With One Palette" in Somerset Studio Magazine, March 2015!
I loved creating these pieces because it was different from anything else I have done. I've mentioned this before, but I always.. always have more than 1 piece that I'm working on at the same time. This allows time for layers to dry and also keeps the creative process "fresh". So the idea of a series that coordinates, is always appealing to me.
The sides of the flower say, "Friends, Family, Love, Laughter"
♥ AMORE / LOVE ♥
Love is a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes. Written ... it is just a word ... like any other word, made up of simple letters. But, like a smile, it will bring a flood of emotions to anyone that reads it, hears it, or speaks it.
When determining my palette for this series, I knew I wanted to use 2 base colors with a POP of a third color. Originally, I had considered brown and ivory with a pop of turquoise, black and white with a pop of bright pink, and a few others. I finally chose this black and white with the pop of bright sunshine yellow. I haven't quite decided why yet, but these colors remind me of Italy.
I love to read your comments!
Have a happy day, Alicia♥
