Valentine's Day Paper Hearts

Perhaps it's because I'm a hopeless and (happily) incurable romantic….
Or maybe it's the little powwow I had with the Saint when I was in Dublin back in the Summer of 2005….

There I was, wandering the city with a tourist map in hand and noticed that Whitefriar Street Church had a shrine and casket with his bones on display.  After a string of disastrous relationships (romantic learning curves) I was keen to pay him a visit.  Let's just say we had words. I met someone just 6 months later. That was 10 years ago now.

Anyway, for the above reasons and more, I adore Valentine's Day.

This year, the lead up feels very celebratory and nurturing in a self-empowering kind of way. Lots of my artist friends are creating art to mark the day, and talking about acts of self-care to promote Love and self-respect. Really looking into the mirror with eyes of kindness. After all, the most important relationship we will ever have is the one we have with ourselves!

I will be doing the same….as well as celebrating the day.

And here is a mixed media painting I have created featuring collaged Paper Hearts.

Have you heard about Courtney Walsh's novel of the same name?
Here is the trailer for her new book >>

Yes! Here's to starting our own traditions!

Wishing you all a beautiful Valentine's Day celebrating your own sovereignty and strong self-worth while flying solo or together.
