I tried printing this Valentine Girl
with my printer.
But the colors came out badly.
So I did a black & white version
& added just a few colors by hand.
Valentine Girl's source was a small,
super quick sketch
I did last summer
when a woman zipped past me
while I was sketching a church.
I led our Library Art Group this week in making
non-adhesive, folded gift boxes.
Valentine's Day has been a fun inspiration
for me since childhood.
I used the January page from a
beautiful letterpress calendar for this box.
I've had a lot of painted snippets around,
great for adorning boxes.
Happy Valentine's Day!
