Hi Everyone!
I decided to paint the lock and add my husband and my name, and our wedding date on the tag. I wanted to try a different color style than I am used to. I am not too happy with the result, but I am not sure if that is because it is not what I normally do.

I spent 2 and a half hours on this piece. I have a picture of the 2 hour WIP below the final picture. I used oils on a 12"x12" canvas.

How did you paint the blue background? Looks so right next to the oranges. Good idea to personalize it.

I thought of Van gogh when I saw it first, the texture and strong blue,yellow and orange look great. I love Van gogh and I love this.

Oh my goodness ! You are still a Bride ! ( apparently you wear the title for the whole first year, not just the day, said someone older and wiser than me) This is a lovely tribute to you and your sweetie, and there is a kind of symbolism in the colours too - the blue and orange are opposite on the colour wheel, yet each works to the best advantage of the other !
