Acrylic Painting 'The Bridge of Love'
Love Bridge | 2022
Acrylic painting with hand embroidery
‘The bridge of Love’ is an acrylic painting that was inspired by the quote ‘Love is the bridge between you and everything’ from Rumi. The quote is written on the top half of the painting in a blue-purple tone and is hand-embroidered, emphasizing the importance of that meaning by creating a three-dimensional effect.
The lettering is framed by numerous red, yellow, blue, and orange roses, along with some other purple flowers. The individual pedals of each rose are painted in different color shades, because love has many facets and shows itself in different ways. The roses as a whole represent the growing and blooming love for each other that is infinite and everlasting.
In the front half of the painting is a dark green mossy and dark brown walnut bridge that symbolizes our togetherness and the frequency of love. It also reminds us that we have a choice to walk that bridge. The entrance of the bridge is wider to invite the viewer to follow the path. The concept that there is no barrier between us all is profound and healing, so release your inner barrier.
