My Valentine

Here is my entry for the Voght Visual Art Center February Show.  It will be in a white frame.  I painted the background and designed the painting using Shelly Beauch's design called Mak-Rah-Mee (the tangle that looks like a love knot).  I wanted to do a piece with Shelly's tangle and get a heart into because February is Valentine month.
I drew over twelve designs before I was satisfied with this one.  I used faber-castell color pencils for shading and hi-liting.  The shading color is Rose Carmine and White for the hi-liting.
