gustava and conrad fall in love


oil painting on birch panel
6 inches square
$350.

i've been painting the little people blocks for about six months now though it feels much longer - having two small children really alters perception of time passing and they are just so a part of what i do now it seems i've been painting them forever - and over that time some of them have definitely stood out as characters that belonged in my little world of paintings. gustava and conrad just belonged together in my mind, there was no escaping it.

How nice that they found each other after all that time on their own blocks. :) Wonderful painting!

somehow she seems as though she wants to leave but he's got a good grip on her.
