I’ll admit, I hadn’t really thought that much about making art for holidays. I mean, I do get in the festive mood around Christmas and it usually rubs off into my work, but when I created my most recent pieces I didn’t have Valentine’s Day in mind. However, something I always have in mind is love. It’s what makes my world go round, and I like to think it makes the rest of the world go round too!
Then yesterday, I realized that the last three digital paintings I created are all related to love and perfect for Valentine’s Day! So, I decided to share them as nice little ways to say “I love you” for the upcoming February 14th holiday. Despite the over commercialization of that and many other holidays, I believe there is always more room for love and always more room for art. These were made in love too; they are a collaboration between my husband and I. He came up with the initial idea, and I developed them into what you see.
P.S. I’m still out of my mini-canvases! I got desperate today and went to the local craft store, which doesn’t have mini canvases, but mini boards. They are a bit bigger at 4×6, but hopefully will make for equally great art. 🙂
