Happy Valentine's Day!

Here's a little valentine to all my followers. A few weeks ago, right after the new year, I gave myself the challenge to make something new from something old. The original idea was to use an old painting that I didn't really like and make it something new.
What I ended up with was a painting made from three old paintings, and it turned into a little something I called "Modern Romance".

This is the first painting that I ended up using as the bottom layer. I used these old left over sheets from Christmas labels, stuck them on the painting and coved those with gesso. I peeled them off when dry and then painted over them.

Then I dug out these old experiments:

Did some cutting and pasting and stamping and ended up with this:

Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. Jane,

    Nice, I really like how you salvaged your previous work and made this cool "Modern Romance" piece.


  2. Thanks Paul! It was a really fun project.

    BTW "Jane" is my middle name! ;-)


  3. Patty Thanks,

    Sorry about that:0) glad to know your middle name is Jane.LOL

  4. It's not something I let just anyone know, so consider yourself lucky, Paul! LOL
