'it's so easy, when you know the rules, it's so easy, all you have to do is fall in love, play the game.' (Queen song)
Partly inspired by old fashioned platform games. Love is a bizarre, crazy game for a Lovebird.
As with all my paintings this was created by first layering washes of watercolour and then the images began to appear on the paper and in this case the platform game you see emerged. Lots of references to love, romance and a little bit of rumpy pumpy.
This is a painting for the mind to travel through playing the game; avoid the nuts, don't be a snail about it, try an aphrodisiac, release the inner rabbits, avoid the exe's and inlaws, find your soul mate Lovebird but after you do don't let that Blue Parrot steal them away with it's rockstar with a wounded wing attitude. It's all wonderful game that we know as love.
