The Little Heart represents the little kid in all of us. The sweetness. The innocence of childhood. It is a symbol of simpler times. I wanted the simplicity of the heart to be a stark contrast to the abstract background. Almost a little jarring and maybe even a little out of place at times.
I have been busy over the past couple of months exploring a new series called "Candid Conversation Hearts". It's composed of 7 original hand crafted paintings based on the classic Necco Wafers Conversation Hearts candy. Ironically, the candy wasn’t available this year because of production issues.
