"This painting was made for a CD called Sweethearts, various muscians singing beautiful love songs. I had made two images, this one of a young woman and another of a young man. The two images faced each other when you opened the CD cover. I wanted to get across a serene look on the woman's face staring up at her lover. I placed flower petals around her face for compositional reasons because I wanted to have some blood red around her face."
