Love & Money

Love & Money - by Jason Campbell - acrylic painting on canvasThis was an idea that came to me when I was looking at coins. I am a little bit of a coin collector. I have coins from all over the world. And I started to think about all the times that “love” and “money” are used together. “Can’t Buy Me Love” is a song by Paul McCartney… “ For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.” 1 Timothy 6:10… etc. In a way they are opposites but in another way money can obviously be used to show love in giving the those in need. Anyway, I look forward to hearing other people’s thoughts on it.

It may be common knowledge but the secret ingredients to making things metalic is.

-Black
-Raw Umber

Also I began to play around with alignment in this one. As humans we like things that are grouped and aligned (e.g. reading text)…. food for thought!
