I painted this image about 14 years ago in my purple & silhouetted people phase. The original was done in watercolor and acrylic on a brown paper shopping bag. Two years ago, I recreated it digitally in order to make a template so I could build a three-dimensional Valentine’s card from it for a small competition (it won). This time, I decided to go back to the rough digital and clean it up to make it available for sale on Greeting Card Universe. Conveniently, it also happens to fit this week’s Illustration Friday theme.
The inside of the card reads, “Of every heart, I choose yours. Be my Valentine!” I realize it’s a bit of an odd image for a Valentine’s Day card, but Happy Valentine’s Day!

Since Johanna mentioned it, I scanned and posted the other two versions of this image in another entry.
