“A Frog in Love”
A Painting to celebrate Valentine’s Day
Thinking one cannot begin too soon to celebrate love, I recently started a series of blog posts featuring paintings created especially for Valentine’s Day. The last one I presented in this blog was “The Queen of Hearts”.
“A Frog in Love”
I had started this painting many years ago in that secret recipe of mine involving acrylic paints and other cooking ingredients, but I had abandoned it, not able to see any interest in it.This happens sometimes: I begin with a painting, bring it normally quite fast to a conclusion, but if it develops too slowly I then lose the patience and the interest, put it to one side and normally forget it. And then years later it reappears and suddenly catches my eye and I know what to do with it and how to finish it. The painting above fell into my hands as I was browsing through old stuff, in search of an older painting I wanted to photograph and publish. I was in the middle of doing Valentine art works, and as I saw it, I recognised hearts in the red flowers … and also there was this big green stain among the hearts and it suddenly jumped out at me that it was a cute little frog!
So here it is, my cute little Frog in Love, celebrating Valentine’s Day with all of us.
