Spirals of the Heart

Heart like a wheel, the heart is a lonely hunter, take another little piece of my heart, many are the songs, stories, and quotes and sayings related to the heart. This fantastic body organ that pumps and keeps us alive is a metaphorical stand-in for true feelings, love, romance, and the whole kit-and-caboodle. What a vessel for complexity, for misdirection, and for framing the contrast between true feelings and the rough steerage of the intellect.

I have heard many stories of the heart, but seldom have I seen one like this, constructed of spirals, and a veritable picture of the spirals of the heart.

I’ve been getting many questions about how my recent images are made, and can only say at this point that I am experimenting with some new techniques, and not ready to get into a technical discussion yet. But here’s a hint: to move from the Love of Spirals image shown at the bottom of Through the Rabbit Hole to this version, The Spiral Heart, I mostly used textures and background layers (more about these techniques in my course Photoshop Backgrounds & Textures).
