I {heart}

 Some time ago, in Latvian social network I saw a photo gallery with photos showing heart shapes in nature. One photo especially caught my eye - see it below. It inspired me so much, that I decided to turn that photo into my own wall art.
I got out my blank 12'' canvas and spread some modeling paste all over it. Then I went over with fork and let it dry.
Then it was just a matter of getting some acrylic paints on. And...
.. rolling and gluing down lots of napkin balls in the shape of heart, Then again it was the matter of painting these balls. I must admit that I really like this piece. It has so much texture, but not too much. And there are so many different undertones to those greens with slight touch of yellow.

Here's the inspirational photo:
