the exploded heart

The other night I felt the urge to make a painting of someone I used to be very close to. Over time and as circumstances changed we drifted apart and eventually went our separate ways. Time continues to move forward and reflecting on the past now and then is good. I made this painting in reflection of the significant memories that were formed together with this very special person. After completing the main facial features I took some red and blue paint and began to splatter the canvas. Then, emerged this incredible blotch. When I look at it I see a heart that has just exploded. It was a fluke splatter but I find it incredibly bold and meaningful, so I decided to post it.
