Just in time for your Valentine. Voluptuous, sensual forms awash in red. Sunflowers bursting with fire. Seas aflame by sunset. Scarlet birds exotic and domestic.

"Vermillion." Blood-hued flower pods bursting in passion. Thermal forests, dragons, a shimmering black figure against a vermillion wall, crimson-suited bathers against a gray sea. Abstract and realistic. Warm-colored barns in a stark landscape. Serious and humorous. A teddy bear, equipped with the New York Times, entering a rouge outhouse. Corrugated board translated to a metal prison. Delicate metal sculpture in tribute to the mighty pomegranate. Paintings, photos, colored pencil. RED in all its glories and implications, shades and tints. Come to the Rockaway Arts Center at Fort Tilden to celebrate the color of life and love.

Title: Vibrant Desire. Artist: Callie Danae Hirsch. Medium: Oil on canvas
