I feel so much satisfaction in the completion of these heart paintings.  I made them during Memorial Day weekend but only put finishing touches on them, including titles, a little while ago.  They are sprawled on the dining room table currently, waiting for me to find a place to store them/sell them.

Hearts are my thing.  They are everywhere in my life – heart paintings in all media abound on the walls of my house; I even find heart stones, (literally, everyday) when I walk the trails of Green Lakes.  I love love.  I find beauty everywhere, particularly in the heart motif, and coupled with the vibrant hues of oil paint infused beeswax and its subsequent texture in my artwork, it fills me with gratitude, a sort of passionate energy and joyous warmth.  I desire to share that feeling with everyone in the world.

One person’s positive energy is stronger than a roomful of debbie downers, lol.  It would be lovely to think that my good vibes saturate these paintings and in that way I can spread seeds of love into this universe.  Corny, I know, but genius.  There is power in the unity of spirit.  Believing in goodness is the stuff of legend. ❤
