I thought a valentine theme might be fun for a few paintings this month. When is it anyway? I think the last time I celebrated this holiday was when I passed out cards in my grammar school class. My husband and I love each other nonetheless.
I think the strawberry should be the fruit icon for Valentine’s Day. It’s such a voluptuous fruit.
I couldn’t find a heart shaped strawberry so I altered the shape as I went along. I wanted to make it subtle enough so it still would maintain its integrity as a strawberry. What a wonderful fruit it is!
