    Found Art Tuesday February 2012

    Tomorrow is Found Art Tuesday and I'm getting ready to leave this painting tomorrow morning when it dawns on me that's it is valentine's day also. Oooops... I did not make a valentine themed Found Art piece. no red. no hearts. no chocolate or teddy bears. I completely forgot about it because I do not "get" valentine's day. Maybe it's because I don't like it. Why do you need to ask your husband/boyfriend that he celebrates you and how much he loves you on one specific day? better do that all year long! But now I am starting to get more philosophical than artistic and I know that's not why you came here. So... art! Found Art Tuesday, where where we? ah yes...

    So this is the piece I made for this month: JUST BREATHE

    Just Breathe....

    This specific girl keeps coming up in my paintings, maybe she has something else to say, maybe she likes to be drawn, I don't know.. but sometimes she feels right when nothing else did. I gave her a name, Alfonsina.

    But see? Not very "valentiney" is it? So I felt bad and while cursing at Cupid... made this:

    So now I have a heart necklace and a painting for Found Art tomorrow. I still don't know which of the two I will use, but definitely one of them will be waiting with a note in a table at Earth Fare in Huntersville tomorrow morning. Which one of the two would you like to find?

    Yea! Great pieces as usual. I am promising to jump on the found art band wagon again soon. Thanks for the little push Rosa!

    Absolutely love both of your beautiful pieces of art and I think either of them would be appropriate on Valentine's day because the day is not about reds or pinks or hearts or flowers or candy, etc. It's about celebrating the abundance of love in our life and living your life passionately. These things are certainly reflected in your artwork. Well done! I would be thrilled to find either of these items. Have fun leaving it behind!

    Love, Love, Love the painting. It's so soothing and Alfonsina is beautiful! I want to live in Huntersville (where is that?) so I can find your art!!
