To explain how I got the title for this painting, let me first show you a picture of it while it was in progress:
As you can see, I painted it on the same page as "Love's Sweet Perfume." (Don't they look beautiful there together? I did not plan that.)
When I shared "Love's Sweet Perfume" I mentioned that it reminds me of the wind. In "Baroque Tempest of Love" it looks to me like the wind has gotten stronger and is swirling around in the background, which is where I got the word "Tempest" from.
But why is it a "Baroque" tempest? Take a closer look at that flower:
The edges of this blossom are very ripply and... well... baroque. So there you have it, a Baroque Tempest of Love. I hope it swirls you up into a dream.
As always, this one is available as a pre-framed print, and you can choose among a wide variety of frames and mats. This is frame #sm5 in the brown frames. I like the way the grain in the wood picks up the swirls in the picture.
