Artist's Description

The “I Love You” sign in one combined motion is the first sign everyone should learn – it’s the heart of communication – “I love you and I want to tell you.” The pinky finger by itself is the letter “I” as it is used in the American Sign Language Manual Alphabet. The index finger and the thumb make the fingerspelled letter “L”. And the thumb and the pinky finger make the letter “Y” . In this way, all of the first letters of the words “I Love You” are represented. I love you. Let me show you with my hands. Look in my eyes and you’ll see it there as well. I love you.
………………
The wonderful thing about the concept “I LOVE YOU” is that is spans age, race, and gender. As I’ve taught deaf children over the years, nothing warms my heart more than catching the smile of one of my students as he or she flashes the “I LOVE YOU” sign on the way down the hall or as the final salute of the day while getting on the school bus. No matter where we are or how far apart we are standing, if I can see them and they can see me, then I can tell them “I love you.” It is our own communication – our secret – our bond. I love you. You don’t have to hear me to know it. I love you.
………………………….
This piece is watercolor and acrylic on a black canvas. After the paint dried, the image was enhanced digitally to intensify the colors. Teal, red, pink, gold, green, blue, and yellow – the colors of the hand are bright, happy, and joyful … and the contrast against the black background really makes those colors “pop.” It’s so much fun! Fine art, pop art, abstract perhaps – call it what you want – but they all spell I Love You.
……………………..
The many colors in the painting represent the diversity of the deaf culture – deafness has no ethnic boundaries – they are their own culture with their own language. And with this sign, we see that it is a language of love. “I love you.” Let me show you.
