New Painting available for Valentine's Day

Sold. Thank you! :)
This is my first painting for Valentine's Day, with lots of texture. I used
vintage papers, ephemera, acrylics, crayons, and charcoal.
She is admiring all the hearts around, may be she will take one.
This little treasure will be available on my Etsy store.

I would like to thank these sweet artists for choosing me for The Lemonade Stand Award. Micki from The Art Hermit, Rischa of Refuge Pour les Artistes and Benedetta from Primitive Folk Art and Stephanie from Fantastic Figments who tag me. I will complete the rules as soon as possible. Thank you so much.


  1. She is lovely! Thanks for visiting today!

  2. Love your lady in pink, she is beautiful.
    Your mum must of had hard times in here generation. She has done proud to come through with her right hand through the pressure of her elders.
    I know a gentleman called Bruce and his mother use to tie his left hand to chair to make him write with his right hand.
    Not nice, in hind sight I don't know if any of us would be so cruel.
    Maybe if these people would know of the damage caused they would of not made the child go through such hardship. Hoping each of our hearts grow kinder?
    Send my love to you and your family.

  3. What an absolutely beautiful painting! I love her! I don't think I've ever heard of ephemera before. Always looking for new things.
    Have a wonderful day! Would love to add you to my blogroll!
