Three Kisses


Here's the thing I don’t understand about my ‘calligraphic paintings’: the pieces I carefully plan generally disappoint me. However, if I make a start and then just let things happen – often making a mess, then cleaning it up – voilá – a piece I like. Go figure.

This triptych wasn’t really planned, but it became, simply ... Three Kisses. (Click on image to see detail.)

Thanks, Jeremie.
Each canvas is 12" x 12".
I'm doing a variation with three 16" x 16" canvases as well, so we'll see how that works...
