Lucky in Love
The roses are going to be gone soon so I picked a couple of my nicer looking blooms and arranged them in a vase. The playing cards were an afterthought because the flowers looked lonely. The queen of hearts is out because it makes a more interesting composition to actually show a card. I arranged this piece into a classic triangle composition and titled it "Lucky in Love". Get it? The roses, the queen of hearts...the relative heart shaped placement of the rose triage. Oh well... I tried. The shadows became an interesting and integral component of this painting because I purposely lit the subject from an acute angle. This painting is 8" x 10" oil on linen.
