One of my favorite things about this time of year is the Sweetheart candy. I never actually eat them, as I think they taste like what I would imagine chalk to taste like, but I love the look of them, and the idea of them. An edible love note.
I painted one this week, the Be Mine one. I was thinking it would be my valentine for Bea this year, as she’s learning to read. I may even add an ‘a’, as I often can’t help myself. Regardless, I like the idea of giving a Valentine that isn’t so temporary. Something a bit more lasting.
A friend of mine saw it and felt the same and commissioned me to do one for her husband. And, then I just couldn’t stop!
So, now I’m taking custom orders!
Create your own message or borrow an old Sweetheart Candy standard. Sweet or silly, reaffirming or epic (‘marry me’, anyone?!), I will paint it for you.
Paintings are acrylic on canvas. These are tiny paintings, either 2in x 2in, or 2in x 4in. $25.
A sweet little gift.
