Laura

24 x 20 inch canvas with a 3 1/4 inch white frame. It is a Gesso and Acrylic Mix Media piece with handmade magazine origami hearts for background texture. Completed February 2012.

This piece was inspired by the origami hearts my sister made to use at my wedding. I did not end up using them but incorporated them into this series of paintings. This piece is the first in the series I completed and is entitled “Laura” after my sister who inspired me to make the painting. The hearts take the shape of a Galaxy like organic configuration symbolizing love that lasts an eternity throughout the Galaxy.
