Today I wanted to give you a little advance about one of the several exciting projects that I am working on in this new year. I am talking about a large painting titled: The Gardener. The drawing that you see in the picture above was the first step in the process of developing this painting. I already drew the girl directly on the canvas and started applying some colors on it. It will take me a long time to finish it because of the size of this piece and the detail but that's exactly what I enjoy. I will keep you updated on the progress of this painting and new ones to come. Yay!!
This painting is about being a good gardener to your own heart. As you can see the girl has a heart in her pocket. Her heart produces flowers, fruits and also weeds. She is carefully trying to see what the weeds are so she can eliminate them. This is a constant labor of love that she does, that's why she's such a good gardener.
This painting is dedicated to everyone who spends time examining her/his heart to make it a better place :)
