Hearts for Fun

OK, I finally found a thing in my studio I can do JUST for fun. As in, light hearted, for the purpose of relaxing and enjoying time in the studio without the kind of focus and effort that Art requires. Making valentines!  Just making collage, drawings, paintings, on a really small scale that feature hearts.

This is a collection of the single heart pieces I made. I'll be posting a video about this on February 1.


Here are a few more; these are 5.5"x7.5".




I found this a great way to play with color, shape, composition, and materials and techniques. You can see more of the collection on Fine Art America. Even if you don't celebrate Valentines Day, try making a group of heart images JUST FOR FUN!

  1. So these diagrams, many really fun, of hearts, were done with ... hand drawing? fabric cut outs? paper cutouts? Yes, some are quite cliched, but the collection demonstrates of how a bit of play can bring up some interesting possibilities to be explored seriously

  3. Yay!! Last year I did the same, and felt the same: I had so much fun!
    I love your small compositions featuring a heart. I might do it this year again. I don't celebrate Valentine either - or may be this is my way of celebrating it? I don't know, but it's a pretext I'm going to seize again!!

  4. Thanks for your comments! Of course, you could do the same kind of exploration of materials/techniques/composition with any given shape. But somehow the heart shape keeps it from being serious.
