New Paintings for Valentine's Day

"where is this Cupid guy already?"
"I love you more than...blah, blah, blah"
"I knew you were out there"
"you're all I have"
"first date"
"do you ever think of me?"
"waited so long"
"the lonely 1" -- Named after one of my favorite Wilco songs which almost makes me cry every time. Listen to it here.
"take me with you"
"safe & warm"
"in serious like"
"I found you"

I have 15 new paintings in my Etsy shop just in time for Valentine's Day. Whew! This was a lot of work, especially for me. As some of you know (Cathy) I generally have a hard time with the whole hearts and flowers thing. It just isn't that interesting to me. I love, love, love my husband but I still find the darker side of love much more appealing.

So, that being said, I do have some lovey-dovey paintings in this series but I also have some that show the lonely and tortured side of romance. After all, before I met my husband I can remember many a lonely Valentine's night cursing the holiday and all of the unforeseen expectations that go along with it.

These paintings are 3" x 3" and are $75 each. And with the purchase of a painting or print I'm also offering a free note card (assuming that it's a Valentine's Day gift). I can make cards from any of my images so just write the name of the image that you want for your free card in the "message to seller".

Happy Valentine's Day!!
