Last Valentine's Day: The Best Ever
V-Day 2014 was the best of my life. I shared it with my sweetie ie whom I married this past New Year's Eve in Las Vegas ;-) One of the reasons that it was the best was because of the gift that he gave to me. I know that sounds materialistic and shallow but, really, it's not. You see, he wrote me a poem and read it aloud to me. In the poem he told me, for the first time, that he was madly in love with me. I won't be sharing that poem, of course, but what I will share is the painting that I had made for his Valentine's Day gift. It actually almost did not exist. Thank goodness for spray fixative! When I was finished, I left it on my workspace over night. When I woke up the next morning, it was covered in water! Standing water! It was a watercolor painting! The cat had knocked over my huge jar of paintbrush water trying to steal his favorite wash brush. Anyway, with a little touch up here and there, it was ready for gift giving.
Ready..... here it is :-) I still love this painting..... it hangs on our bedroom wall.
