Among the notable things in Vilnius, the capitol of Lithuania, are the spires and the architecture, featured in the background of this painting. Lithuania is nominally a Roman Catholic country, with 75% of the population purportedly members. However the statistics show that half the population does not believe in the Christian deity. I have portrayed the irony of this apparent contradiction through the unusual placement and distortion of the spires, which serve at once to unite and divide the couple.
Enamorado con Amor/In Love with Love continues with this expressionistic piece. Without love what kind of creatures would we be?
The background is heavily textured, applied with a knife. Strong colors fore and aft with strong highlights on the sofa and edges of the figures.
