Amor is a light-hearted painting of a beautiful silver-haired woman dressed for an evening out, wearing a white and metallic silver summer dress with a red silk shoulder wrap draped over her arms. Her dog is standing on her wrap in an effort to prevent her from going without him as she offers him a checkered ball in exchange for leaving him at home.
The wall behind the figure is wallpapered in metallic gold with raised roses, adding a luminous richness to the scene. Candles cast a golden glow on the calico cat in the window, who is more curious about the person viewing the painting than what is happening with the dog. An iguana eyes the cat warily from his perch on the window sill, basking in the warmth of a hanging lantern.
The woman's face reveals both amusement and understanding for her dog, who looks at her pleadingly to take him along - a scene every dog owner has experienced many times.
Impasto brush strokes are scattered across the surface of the painting, adding a luscious tactile dimension to its charm. The mood the painting evokes is jovial, optimistic, and nostalgic.
