I have been really enjoying painting landscapes lately. Landscapes with lots of open spaces and simple colors. I thought I'd like to paint a picture to use for a valentines day card for my husband. I wanted to combine two themes for the picture- landscapes which I know he likes and also valentines day. I was really pretty excited with the results. I think it's restful to look at and the valentines theme isn't overbearing. At least that's what I think of it. But then again, I'm a sucker for quiet colors and large open spaces.
(Thanks to Ben for giving his permission to put his valentines card up here.)
