Carnet de notes :
The first study was
done two years ago:
Later on, I attempted other interpretations:
my friend and art-collector Wayne Mello encouraged me to
work further on this motif.
The painting completed today,
convey well the feeling of one's awaiting for encountering
love. In the secrecy of a late-winter night, a heart-shaped
announcement of Spring glows in the woods.
I am sure
however that each painting is perceived differently by their
collectors, I am just telling you what was my state of mind while
painting this Valentine's series, a project that delightfully
occupy my winters, years after years.
