For A Valentine?

For A Valentine?  oil  9"x 9"
My husband spotted this in a bakery case while grocery shopping and when I saw it, I knew I had to paint it. I saw the  heart shapes of the strawberries, were repeated in the heart shape of, and in, the chocolate cup, so that was the basis for the title.
Pin It

Very nicely done!!
You have a thing with sweets, don't you??
I have an artist friend who used to paint pastries all of the time.
She just had a one woman show where all of the paintings were DONUTS!! (36x36 selling at $2800 each)...

Oh, wow, would I like some of that clientelle! HA! I do like the round shapes and rich clear colors that are presented. Also, they seem to contain a kind of story, or at the very least get a reaction from viewers! Yes, you should try it,and thanks for checking in and your thoughts Marian :)Mary
