“Valentine” was created in the winter of 2011 and is 12 x 12 inch, mixed media on gallery stretched canvas. (That means it's wrapped all the way onto the back and stapled, as opposed to just wrapped to the sides and stapled there.)

I apologize for my sub-par photography skills as the pictures of “Valentine” do not do the piece justice. The background is crackled white with metallic pink and red splotches and iridescent pink, red and white fine glitter, as well as heart-shaped glitter, which shines beneath the glossy glaze varnish.

Her hair is a metallic black and her eyes are a metallic brown with pretty red lipstick on her mouth. Her dress is pink, red and gold paisley with metallic magenta underskirts.

In her hands she holds placards that spell out "VALENTINE", which are strung together with pink embroidery floss.

How To Take Care of Your Painting:

My paintings should be dusted regularly, especially if you smoke in your home. The front and sides of the paintings can be gently wiped clean with dish soap and water, but take care NOT to get the back of the canvas wet.

If you push on the back of the canvas, the varnish may crack. In most cases, the cracks won't be visible to the naked eye (like if you were just standing there looking at a hung painting you wouldn't notice them), but can be seen up close, so please be careful when choosing a place to hang it so that if it falls for some reason, the back of the canvas won't hit anything solid, such as the corner of a shelf.

Please take care of your painting. I work really hard on them and I want them to last your lifetime.
