Love is proof of the presence of God for some people. For others, it's the ultimate way of feeling whole. Love can mean many things to different people, and it can evoke different feelings as well. But, the most common one would be happiness. When we know that the person we love and cherish feels the same way about us, that joy is inexplicable. It may be hard to show what love is but artists and other creative individuals don't stop trying.
One artist, Pascal Campion, has taken it upon himself to show the world what love is from his eyes. This master digital artist has created numerous artworks, which have also been showcased in publications like The New Yorker, and more. In his own words, he told the New Yorker, "I try not to show everything so it leaves room for the reader’s imagination. That’s also why I like evening or night scenes best: you can suggest more with shadows."
He likes to show the little gestures of love that we practice in life which shows our devotion to our partners more than the big gestures. "The little moments are just as important as the big ones," he told HuffPost. Most of his dreamy and romantic work is inspired from his life with wife Katrina. The French-American artist lives in Burbank, California with his wife of 13 years, his 12-year-old daughter, and 9-year-old twin boys.
