My Heart!

Recently, I had an echo cardiogram test on my heart. I found the whole process fascinating. How incredible to be able to see inside the organ that keeps you alive!
It was truly beautiful and when I came home I knew I had to paint the experience. 
This painting stands alone. It is not part of a series and I will keep it for myself but thought I would share it with you.

'My Heart' 
18" x 36"
Acrylic on canvas 2015

The colors are the colors that show up on the, blue and yellow. The primaries.
I had a giggle as metaphorically that made sense to me.
I also think of red as symbolic for the masculine/active principle in life, and blue for the feminine/ receptive.
Yellow symbolizes energy and life to me so, I found these colors very apt. 
There was a nice balance between the red and the blue with highlighted accents of yellow.
(The red and blue pulsed with blood flow and yellow sparked up with electrical activity.)
It feels to be a well balanced heart.
My results were good and my heart is happy!
I hope you like it!
