Valentine Hearts Collection

Yes, I know we have about a month until Valentine’s Day, but I’ve been at work creating my Valentine Hearts Collection for a while and I’m ready to share them with you.

Forever is Composed of Nows - Emily Dickenson original mixed media canvas

I had a pack of lovely paper heart doilies that are perfect for collaging and mixed media.  They gave each piece a vintage feel whether I was using a walnut ink spray or distress ink.

I’ve also been influenced by some of my favorite American poets.  Emily Dickenson’s Forever is Composed of Nows inspired this vintage piece.  I love her message of celebrating the everyday and not letting a moment go to waste.

Forever — is composed of Nows —
‘Tis not a different time —
Except for Infiniteness —
And Latitude of Home —

From this — experienced Here —
Remove the Dates — to These —
Let Months dissolve in further Months —
And Years — exhale in Years —

Without Debate — or Pause —
Or Celebrated Days —
No different Our Years would be
From Anno Domini’s —

Not to long ago I shared with you my love of  e.e. cummings poem and the canvas I created to showcase it.

The originals of these next canvases have sold, but fortunately I do have prints available in each.
