commission: thoughts returned to him

This is my third work for one of my lovely clients.  I posted image progressions for both her first and second commissioned works.  I loved making this piece.  Conceptually, this work is based on the realities versus the idealized versions of romantic love, both its amazing beauty and the potential of heartbreak.  The color palette and design elements were similar to her other large square work, to make a striking series.
