Valentine's Card
Only one month is left before Valentine’s Day; and, I am working on Valentine’s designs. This season I’ve started with a few images from my collection.
All of them, in my opinion, are well suited for this heart-full holiday.
The Tulips On Fire above were so good for warming up any heart; and the reach background might be loved by a person, who (like me) appreciates green.

Next design is definitely for purple color lovers. 
The Stripy Purple Orchid was a good match:

Happy Valentine Day Card
A written Love Note looks great on this still life with the Pen and A Red Heart:

An antique doll is inviting her Valentine for a Tea Party:

A Sweet Valentine note to her mom from a cute baby in a Heart shaped dream:

And a few giggles from a Red Hat holding a colorful heart-balloons bouquet:

And now, I am off to paint new artworks for new Valentine cards’ designs.

Love Is All Around!!!

A Couple And The Sea

a couple in water
A newly wed couple at the sea.. I wanted to paint them in bright colors and a great contrast to emphasize the beginning of the family life: bright and cloudless (at least at the beginning ;).. 

They are looking at the sailboat far on the horizon. 

I wanted to have a sailboat in the painting as a symbol of light, full of adventurous future..
watercolor water
I painted the couple from the photograph, and I know that those days when photo was taken, the two went to the Baltic Sea for the vacation, warm weather allowed them to get their feet wet and have some time for just themselves. And by the way, the wife just broke a great news to her husband; it was a baby coming on board. 

Great new beginning, new life, new family, and … 
a new painting :0)
He and She
