The Making of “The Keeper Of Your Heart”
Size: 116*70 cm
Oil on canvas
To tell you about this painting I should to take you back a few years, to 2006 actually, when I had the idea to make this painting with someone very special, a very talented artist, Roula Abdo.
June 29, 2006, the day we began working on it (Fig.1) and sadly it was the last, few weeks later I left my country (Lebanon) and went to France. And that was it for the painting! (Fig.2)
Up until last year (2010) when I decided to get it done.
November 18, 2010, the day I picked up where we left off, continued the drawing, made some changes, adjusted some stuff, added some details and voilà! the charcoal phase (Fig.3).
The Keeper Of Your Heart, took about 6 months in my limited free time and if we take of holidays. And I gotta say, I’m really glad I finished it 😀
Anyway I hope you enjoy it and remember,always do what you feel in your heart to be right, and nothing else matters cause you’ll be criticized anyway
