Pastel, acrylic, ink,resin & neon lighting on canvas with custom floating acrylic frame
“It Had to Be You” is an original painting by Dallas’s abstract expressionist Christi Meril. This piece features one of the artist’s “hearts,” which always represents the vital role love plays in all aspects of our life. Bold, modern, and vibrant background colors of neon yellow, cobalt blue, neon pink, green, and orange pop in a scattering of hearts, and xo’s are a beautiful backdrop to the multi-dimensional heart created with layer upon layer of paint. The word “YOU” has been created in custom neon lighting and attached to put an exclamation point on it’s message!
