Valentine's Art

A few days ago I found these colored pencil works. They'd been abandoned in a dusty old portfolio in my studio:

"Celebrating Ersulie's Love" c. 2008 Stephanie Rose Bird, watercolor pencils


                    "Open Hearts" c. 2008 Stephanie Rose Bird, prismacolor pencils


                          "Feelings" c. 2008 Stephanie Rose Bird, prismacolor pencils


                    "Overpouring" c. 2008 Stephanie Rose Bird, prismacolor pencils

                 "Layers of Love" c. 2008 Stephanie Rose Bird, prismacolor pencils


Lessons Learned:

1. What you have may surprise you.

2. Hidden treasures can be right under your nose.

3. You never know what you will discover and when.

4. It's entirely possible to pleasantly surprise yourself with what you've done but forgotten.

5. Love is a powerful emotion, especially when shared.


Have a happy St. Valentine's Day!
