Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This is an acrylic painting on a 24 x 30 inch gallery wrapped canvas. I wanted to make a Madonna-like picture (the religious figure, not the singer!) and it occurred to me that the Queen of Hearts and the Madonna had some similar traits and energy. All about love. So I painted the Queen of Hearts, but she is softened from the regal look she had on the playing card. Now she is a loving mother, and the Earth is her child. I used stencils for some of the background patterns. on

Is the piece for sale? Yes on

Love your use of color and pattern in your work. Delicate features contrast with the bolder lines. Great personal style!
