happy valentine's day & 52 weeks of me

i hope you all have a very special and happy valentine's day!

i decided to mark the occasion by creating a small canvas featuring.....a heart!

6"x6" gallery-wrapped canvas - acrylics & mixed media
click on image to enlarge

the weight of the buddha keeps the heart closed but it opens out to reveal a list of some of the things that i love.



52 WEEKS OF ME - WEEK SIX


YIKES!!! i nearly forgot to post my self portrait pic for the week.

i thought you might be a little bored of seeing my face all the time so, today, you get my feet...lol

    Genie - How did you know? After finishing the canvas, I placed it on my altar in the the studio and it fits in perfectly. It feels sacred to me too.

  16. thanks, all ~ :)

    Jacque - no leggings though I love that look too. this is a wrap-around skirt which has two layers and can be worn quite a few different ways.

    Robyn - I LOVE that look too! Are your Doc Martens the chunky boot style?

  21. Oh, Serena, this is very beautiful. I love the color, and I love the part where the heart can unfold and it contains all the things dear to you ... I think this is a perfect depiction for Valentine's Day.

    *It's ingenious of you to put the Budha in front of the heart so it can be closed.

    *Tire of seeing your face? Hehehe. Never! But, I adore your ballerina'like shoes :) Ah, such dainty feet you have :D
