Video-Song

Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love, it is a hunger
An endless, aching need
I say love, it is a flower
And you, it’s only seed

It’s the heart, afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It’s the dream, afraid of waking
That never takes the chance

It’s the one who won’t be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dyin’
That never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong

Just remember, in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lie the seed, that with the sun’s love
In the spring, becomes the rose

Oilpaint on Canvas.
Made by me ienemien in October 2009

This is Only the Underpaint.
Use pink acryl for the underpaint and only white oilpaint (Titan White) for the light and dark brown (Umber) for the shadows.
The nice thing is, that brown and white together is green on the pink underground and I like that…

Now I am painting the real colors and shadows and forms, in the centre of the rose I started with a transparent oilpaint in peach color. Its not finished yet :-))

It takes time to finish it…
