You have to know the expressive heart shapes of this hosta inspired me to create this painting to showcase this favorite gardening shrub. It is the second in a series of hostas featuring heart shapes. I played with the positioning of the leaves until I arrived at this arrangement which features them in all their glory and creates engaging shapes between them. I love that design element in this painting. Every time I look at it I find myself exploring the negative shapes between the leaves. Those delightful little shapes are an important design element that intrigues the viewer and adds interest to the whole. Within those spaces between the leaves I added tiny transparent crystal beads that catch the light and sparkle as your eyes move across the painting which continues around all four canvas edges.. No frame is required for this contemporary acrylic painting. The rose colored hearts with the accents of cream, green and blue remind me of little valentine tart candy treats, or Sweet Tarts.
