This painting is just over the top. It was very improvisational, and I added the word "true" on a whim.
By the way, do you ever wonder how painters just improvise a pen-and-ink drawing with no pencil lines or marks beforehand? The trick is to "draw" the picture invisibly and get an idea of where your pen will go. It's like a dance. Watch and see:
I did lots of video for this painting and it was just sooo fun! Here's the moment when I looked down at the painting and named it. Want to know why I called this "True Love Circus?" Click to watch.
For those of you who can't watch video, the basic idea is that true love is an over-the-top adventure, like a circus. You're doing a wild and crazy thing and taking a big risk when you enter into love. And you don't just take risks in the beginning, you take them all throughout your love. And you know it's a risk because sometimes people fail at love.
And of course, this painting is something of a circus. It's not shy! It's very over-the-top, with hints of rainbows and lots and LOTS of yellow. Which of course is one of my favorite colors. Which isn't saying much because I have many favorite colors!
If you like this painting, and you like true love, why not get a print so that you can have true love on your wall? You can even get it pre-framed. Here it is in the "SLW5" brown frame:
