I worked on paintings for LOVE SAYINGS: wit & wisdom of romance, courtship, and marriage during the September 2014, 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge. I created seven love themed pieces, and submitted them all. These are the two that were chosen. If you are interested, you can see the other paintings here.
Heart home is watercolor, acrylic, pen, collage on Yupo. It was so much fun to work on! This piece appears at the end of Chapter 2.
As these were daily paintings during the challenge, I worked small. The next heart came together very quickly. I guess I was having fun with it as well.
Here are the pages from the book. Bradford G. Wheler, the author, was kind enough to offer contributors a digital copy. Thank You Brad! Such a fun read. And a fun experience!
