Day 8 of the the '29 Faces' Challenge: V. D. Cards




Day 8 of the '29 Faces' Challenge!   As mentioned in my post from yesterday, I'm really so enjoying this project. The exercise of painting daily is terrific practice for me, which I'm truly appreciating in addition to all the fabulous networking opportunities.  However..., the painting/photographing/uploading/editing/blogging and posting daily has also meant a VERY late night for me pretty much every single day this whole past week (thanks to my own time management issues).  And I dare say it's beginning to catch up with me here (*yawn*).  Therefore it's my goal to hit the sack at a reasonable hour this evening, thus my Face of the Day today is a relatively simple one:

The Front of a Home made Valentine's Card, 4" x 6"  (to be adding lettering to say 'Be Mine')

I've always created my own Valentine's cards to give to my kiddos, so that was my art focus for the day today.  And it made perfect sense to paint my cards this year with anthropomorphic hearts, natch (because 'Practical' is surely my middle name, heh)....

This is very appealing Patience, very sweet!

Your story reminded me of the one time I tried making valentines for my family - my husband and older son loved theirs (drawings of a Boston Terrier & a tiger respectively) but my younger son, then 4 saw his and his face clouded over, it scared him :( It was a dragon or something like that breathing fire into the shape of a heart, lol. I'd forgotten that story until I read yours

Thanks so much for the comment, Vicky! And for sharing your story -- and quite the story it is too (your poor 4 year old! -- was he the sensitive type?). It's interesting actually that you should say, because earlier today when you mentioned your daughter (and how she was confused about my F.B. name ;-)), it had gotten me to pondering what your kids think about artwork. Guess you picked up on my wavelengths, lol! ;-)

I love this. Her shading is lovely. And her pout so kissable - just as a valentine should be!
