This is a recent piece that I thought of from a moment of inspiration while laying awake. The purpose of the concept was clear from the beginning as a heart transplant, organ donor, or heart disease prevention and awareness piece. I had originally filled-in the swirly interior details with several colors but the larger concept of a pair of clasped hands in the shape of an anatomically correct heart began to get lost on people, so I instead opted to leave the swirls unfilled and therefore relegate them to their rightful place as a decorative detail within the larger composition. The colors then help to accentuate the various parts of the heart and are dominantly colored various shades of purple to borrow the symbolism of bravery and selflessness that the color represents within this context.
