Oasis. Islands. Twos. The idea evolved. I loved these cakes on first sight. Saw them as a pair immediately. Maybe I seek to improve the feng shui in my relationship corner by pairing things. We'll see if it works. I liked these because they are similar yet distinct. That they are sublimely cooling and clean, well, major plus right now. Painting subtle things and giving them depth and heft as well, presents a lovely challenge. Kind of like attraction, balance, light, passion, and form. Not too much, just enough. Well, that's like a relationship too. And love. Hmm. If you told me this was a painting about love, I would look twice and be amazed. Then nod. Yes. I guess it is.
