In the Enamorado con Amor/ In Love with Love series, expressions of affection.  Background reminiscent of Kupka’s “Madame Kupka.”   Without love, where would we be now?

This is another in the Enamorado con Amor/ In Love with Love series, expression of affection in this case as in some of the other coming by means of dance.  Background reminiscent of Kupka’s “Madame Kupka.”

Another in the Enamorado Con Amor/In Love with Love series.  Part of love is intimacy, but of course not all intimacy denotes love.  Here it does, and the couple sparkles in the play of light and shadow.

The pigments used in pastels are the same as those used to produce all colored art media, including oil paints.  The binder has a neutral hue and low intensity.  

Pastel is challenging because it is mixed and blended on the paper or other surface.  Colors cannot be tested on a palette although with the new powder pastels you can.  This work was done with sticks.  Changes are not easy to make, as you can not just paint over things.

In use since the Renaissance, they were very popular in the 18th century.  My favorite pastel painter is Renoir.

I continue the exploration of couples expressing affection.  Here the image is the same as the first, but the treatment varies, and it is on paper versus wood, so the interaction between paint, medium a base offers additional variations.

“My favorite is Enamorado con Amor II  Couple in Love with Love. You can feel  the intensity. Just beautiful.”  Arlene

Love takes many forms and we can always use more and can never have too much.  We should not oppress it but encourage its flowering and deepen the bonds that hold us together.
