The Forever Kind

Close ups

Acrylic on 7x5 hardboard.

I first applied Super Heavy Gesso...it gave a great textured surface to work upon.

My title, "The Forever Kind", of course refers to love. The folks in the painting look as though they've seen a good number of Valentine's Days together...and will share the remaining ones for the rest of their days.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
Thanks for looking!

  5. The thicker the texture, the better... Great job of handling the image on top of that texture. Happy V-Day! -Don

  6. Your painting and the emotions it evokes are beautiful, Dean. I was doing some last-minute Valentine's Day shopping yesterday when I happened to look up and see an elderly couple holding hands, standing close together and being so tender with each other as they decided what they were going to get. It was so touching, and just made my Valentine's Day! This painting does the same thing - it's the love that counts!!!
