Hidden Hearts

22x30 acrylic on Lanaquarelle 140 lb hot press paper, the last one done in Doug Walton's class on Thursday. Its abstract design is based upon a tiny 3x3 square of 5 colors chosen thru a random drawing. Top background is glazed with Liquitex fluorescent red. As I worked, dark and pastel pink hearts appeared, hence the title. In my tiny square, the black only went about 1/3 of the way across from right side; Doug had me paint it all the way to indicate a mountain. Later when it is back from the Heritage Museum show, I may take the black out and further develop the heart theme. More detail is what I like so this one's my favorite of all the pieces done.
