This afternoon in honor of the day that this is, and as a surprise to my own sweetheart, I painted this Valentine's Day sketch I did several years ago back when we were still (long-distance, ugh) dating. I had a bouquet of roses and daisies delivered to her apartment, and as she didn't have a vase, the next best thing was the hot pink pitcher, which worked just fine. I had a little trouble getting the watercolor-flower pattern on the dress just right without making it look too muddy, but working with a few brush settings I think I managed to get the idea across.
Happy Valentine's Day, J! You are the loveliest valentine I ever had.
P.S. Thanks to everyone for helping us reach 10,000+ visitors! I kind of think we had a glitch in our counter, and we might have reached that a little while ago, but now the widget reflects it regardless. I wondered if we should do a separate post as a milestone marker, but I think this will suffice, for now at least. Thanks to everyone to watching, following, commenting and sharing!
