I’ve been working on some sweet little painted Valentine’s art. Something I would like to receive myself… you know with hearts, flowers and vines all over it. I dig the flowery sickening sweet romantic stuff. I can’t help it, I’m a girly girl at heart and St. Valentine’s day is the perfect time and excuse to be all flowery.

This one, which is still a work in progress, is called “You’re growing on me”. Appropriate, don’t you think? I gave you a sneak peek of the background when I was sharing my greenhouse photos with you. It seemed romantic to me, and this is what it’s led to. Here are some progress photos I took along the way.

I had to add the white so my colors would pop for the flowers over top of the dark greenery.

I’m still adding a little tweak here and there, but it’s nearly finished. I’ll be selling the original matted and may have a frame option as well, prints will also be available. Valentine’s Day is just three weeks away. Give art for St. Valentine’s Day ~ it will be enjoyed everyday.
