Description

this painting is one of my favorites because it capture all of the elements i love about painting....color, black and white, an animal, and my woman.  the composition of the piece is balanced between primary and secondary colors and the use of B&W in the figures.  the stripes i feel create energy in the piece and there is also a feeling of peaceful meditation but can also be interpreted as some kind of sadness..... my love for painting stems from figurative works and i actually began to pursue art as a career choice because of my desire to create abstract interpretations of people i encounter throughout my lifetime.  DeAnna is my girlfriend and her dog Tita was born in Argentina and can speak fluent spanish lol .... Tita had to be put in a kennel during a transitional period in Dee's life so it was important for me to reconnect the two because i could tell DeAnna missed her dog alot....  to me its a symbol of friends, back together again sharing a moment together..... great friends are hard to find, so thats why im glad youre one of mine....MSA
