Another painting in my "Rainbows Promise Love" series. This one is just full of galaxies and galaxies of love!
My cousin named this painting for me... her name is Krystle, so I think it's appropriate, since there are so many crystalline stars in this picture.
Want to know a secret? I almost threw this painting away. I actually had it in the discard pile because when I originally painted it, I didn't have any stars in it. It made the little "abyss" in the middle of the painting seem more like a black hole than anything else.
But at the last minute I thought, "What the heck, I'll give it one more try." I grabbed my conte` crayon and started dotting in stars... and suddenly it was my favorite painting. It just goes to show that you should never quit on a project until you have either ruined it or made it great.
I didn't get many process photos of this one, but here's an idea of how it started out:
That rose was already pretty trippy, wasn't it?
By the way, in case you missed it on my Facebook page, I did release a video e-card based on this painting. Since I made this one just before Halloween it's got an ooky spooky feel. The music is not to be missed!
If this painting sends you "out of this world," remember that you can get a print in my shop. Or you can get a throw pillow. I think these are super cute, and you can customize the border to be either fun or serious. (Here it is in the default orange and in "Gray 5.")
