I can remember the first time I was given a cheap set of pastels, one of the colors was Vermillion. My favorite color, it sent me in rhapsodies to swish it around on my paper. This love affair with the hues between orange and red continues with me to this day. It surprises me how infrequently I paint with this color; but I went all out for this painting.
This is a combination of two Valentines, the parrot tulips my husband gave me, and the Valentine painting (demurely hiding behind the flowers) that I made for him.
Happy V day, not quite St. V’s day, but why not!
What’s the best Valentine you ever gave or got?
