#4 Stolen Kiss

#4 of the challenge. This is one of those times where you just get lost in experimenting. I have been using prussian blue to do just random shapes with bold strokes. Then I added colors and more shapes on top while some of the dark blue has dried and some hasn't. I noticed that the faces on the right had a shape of paint that "connected" those two. So I ran with that. Who wouldn't?  I love it when the painting itself makes the decisions! This is done on a 6x6 canvas with wide (painted) sides, so no frame is needed.
