Diving for Love

This is a slight departure on my usual palette knife painting. It's a combination of palette knifework and hand carved stamps.

The background is palette knifework with a pretty substantial texture. I'd made a pair of handcarved stamps with these diving swallows several years ago that fit the size of this canvas nicely. The border was created by scraping the width of a palette knife perpendicular to the edge. It was a fun diversion to my usual work.
