Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


After my mom died of cancer, I started painting these to bring more joy. Give someone a surprise anonymous gift of one of my heart paintings along with a "Love Dispatch" which is a hand-written note celebrating them, a reminder about how special they are, Perfect for someone going through cancer, other hardship, or their caregivers. Or simply as a gift to yourself.

Friends started seeing them in my house and so now I make them for others as surprises or for you! It is part of my project to send Love notes to people in need.

Each is a one-of-a-kind and is intended to produce smiles and cultivate compassion in the viewer.

Produced on signed hard canvas board 8x10 inches large and comes with a hand-written Love letter that I call a Love Dispatch.

If this is for you, just let us know or tell us who to surprise this with! You will NOT be named as it will simply be a surprise gift for them.

Thank you!
