Part of a series of oils paintings created at the end of a relationship.

I was born in Chicago on the 02-28-77 I spent my early childhood in San Francisco under the strict yet loving care of my parents. who where Rosicrucian priests.

At a early age i Began to draw using perspective and with lust i tought myself to draw and sculpt.

My parents would never allow action figures or toys that represented war so I began sculpting my own out of bee’s wax and many of the things i resented as a child became the very building blocks of my artistic growth.

    I love the visual intensity of the pain being expressed, the dripping blood, and the fact that you did the heart as a real heart, not the shape of a heart. A very powerful image. Love it.

  • thank you Lisa!
