Love Stories

I really like paintings that can stand alone and hold their own weight,
but I love paintings that you can put together to create a dialogue.
This pair is interesting because if you put them together one way
it seems like they are parting ways, with one looking back.
If you switch them around it's an entirely different story
about a coy courtship, 
or an unrequited love.
“To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves.”
 ― Federico GarcĂ­a Lorca, Blood Wedding and Yerma
 "Love Stories" acrylic on canvas $175 each
“Because what's worse than knowing you want something, besides knowing you can never have it?”
― James Patterson, The Angel Experiment
