Wowie zowie am I excited about this one! I just love that cool green flower against the red lettering.
The funny thing about this one is that when I first painted the background it was AWFUL! It looked like Jerry Garcia puked on it. The horror!
This has been one of the biggest challenges of the "Rainbows Promise Love" series. It's really hard to integrate all of those saturated colors without making it look like a bad ripoff of a Grateful Dead poster.
I added a lot of black to tone it down. (And I stayed up waaaay past my bedtime. Because I was in that panicky-obsessed mode I get into when I am walking the line between success and utter failure.)
In the end I surprised myself by succeeding. As I've said so often, you shouldn't give up on a project until you've either succeeded, or else failed beyond redemption.
Take a look at the details:
I threw in some pictures of this print on a tote bag and a pillow because I just love the way that lipstick red looks.
