About this painting
This small panel was initially an offcut of wood, presenting the opportunity to develop a new idea. Two simple symbols combine to convey a message.

The visual themes of the love heart and hour glass shape are repeated throughout this picture. A love heart in the colours of white and red rose petals is pierced by an arrow, thorned like a rose stem. A solitary tear drop, the full grey clouds, and the sad mood of the reflected faces in the lower left corner reinforce the central emotion of the painting, while the hourglass filling with sand and the distant bird reinforce time passing. Note the artificial perspective box to give an impression if distance which makes the canyon on the dead floor appear more solid.
