The Blue Heart

“The Blue Heart” is a heavily textured mixed media abstract painting by Kathryn Gruber.

This painting is mixed media with dark values dominated by purples, blue and teal, with a red line in oil pastel that dances and swoops horizontally across the middle of the painting, from left to right. Lighter values such as white and beige surround the outside left and bottom with lines, scaffolding-like triangles, curved lines, and shapes with dots and lines carved into them with various pottery tools. A variety of texture is shown, from soft white, to flat purple, to lines scratched into the surface and areas of thick paint layered on top. A golden wash is evident in many areas, seeping into the texture.
