LOVE

Themed artwork is becoming more popular within stores these days. I had some stores purchase this adorable painting to add to there Valentine gift section.
I came up with this design before Christmas not even thinking about Valentines Day. I just wanted to create a pretty painting that would be perfect for a little girls nursery.

So, when I am coming up with designs, I write down a list of items and ideas as to what I am wanting to create. This was my list for this particular painting.
  1. a modern tree
  2. pink colored hues as dominant color
  3. hearts (of course)
  4. cute abstract birds
  5. add texture by felt and hand-made printed paper
  6. I wanted this painting to be able to fit with a number of different decors in a nursery.

That was my list, and you see the finished product. I named the painting " LOVE "
because to me the painting sets off happiness and warmth. And everyone who has seen it just smiles. And that tells me that they LOVE it.

Thank you reading!
