Heather is a 5’2” piece of heaven. She is my muse; her charm, beauty, and personality inspire me. I made this painting in the spring of 2010 when I taught I wasn’t going to see her again. The painting is based on drawing I made for her, the painting and drawing do not look like. The painting is based on how I felt at the time. Fortunately she is still around. Yay! The way I painted the roses was based on a technique I tried in a drawing. The drawing didn’t turn out that well, but I knew if done correctly it would work. The most difficult part of this painting was getting the blood and the color of the blood (yes it is blood) to match the rest of the painting.

This is the drawing.
