Red is the color of Passion

  February is coming to an end quickly and as I looked back at my recent projects and journaling the other day,I found I had used red almost exclusively.
Some say Red is the color passion,others say it is of fire and your heart and still others say it is the color of love. 
To me,the color RED is all of these things. For I know,my beating red heart is full of passion to stand for what I believe,my heart burns with fire for the injustices of this world and my heart is Full,yes it is full of LOVE.
 And I believe in loving passionately, loving with fire and to always LOVE without limits.

 My piece grew around a photo I took several years back at
The plaster sculpture is Cupid and Psyche  
1794 by Antonio Canova (Italian, Possagno 1757–1822 Venice). 

 This link will take to you to the love story of Cupid and Psyche
This is a wonderful tale of two young lovers who love with passion and without limits and do what is needed to be together.
Ah,young love and the romance of it all!
  I hope my mixed media piece has inspired you to
 "love without limits"

Candy C said...

Me again Jackie. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment! You're just the best! I hope that you're digging out from the snow and nasty weather you've recently had. I wanted to come see your passion piece again. I'm not a big fan of red, for some stupid reason, but you've made me really want to use it more often. This piece is so dynamic. LOVE IT!

Win Dinn said...

What a marvellous post, and all that wonderful red just lifts my heart. Many thanks for this, Jackie! xo

Hello my friend. I hope all has been well with you this last while, since I've been out and about. Your mixed media project is just amazing!! I love the vibrant red, sure pops!! The texture is incredible and the bits of glitter are amazing!! Such a beautiful project!! sending hugs :)

denthe said...

It really looks 3-dimensional! It's beautiful, and I love your description of what the colour red means to you. The passion and love you're talking about are visible in everything you say and do. Wonderful work ♥

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

So true about the colour red! Red is probably the colour I use the least - perhaps not surprisingly because I don't consider myself a passionate person (unless you're talking about passion for art!) It matches your theme perfectly in this case - love how that image pops against the deep red background, balancing it perfectly!

A beautiful post, in words and pictures. I don't work with red very often, but reading your words and looking at your stunning project makes me think I should let it out more!
