“In everyone there sleeps a sense of life lived according to love.” Philip Larkin

My attempt to counterbalance Larkin’s maudlin view of love with a mature portrayal of the force of love throughout the life-cycle. The bottom third of the painting conveys the jumbled intensity of young infatuations before layering up to a more stable set of feelings.  At the very top we finally reach a solid and exulted tranquil healing.
