Acrylic painting on 18" Round Spruce Panel 1.5" thick, "I Can Still Love" Outsider Folk Art, African American Artist Stacey Torres


What used to be smooth and firm, is now soft, flabby and fluffy ...
What used to stand up proud, now shyly hides flat against my heartbeat ...

Where there once was a curve in my road, there is now a warm soft place to rest ...

Sparkles have turned to twinkles ... and that's okay ...

The heartbeat that once shouted passion, now whispers, "I am here ... notice me!"

The bronze highlights have been replaced by stardust ...

But the longing remains the same ...

I can still love.

Mix media -- this was done in a 3-part process, including a pour technique, layering and my unique style of portraiture -- on an 18" Spruce round panel. To hang on your wall, or place on a shelf or table. "I Can Still Love," by Stacey Torres.

Some of my artwork has been featured on CBS' "CRIMINAL MINDS," Season 10.
