(Anti) Valentine's Day - He Loves Me....Not

He Loves Me...Not (from the "It's Not You" Series), acrylic and mixed media on canvas

And so, another year has passed, and it's not all roses and chocolates. This painting from a few years ago reflects my sentiments on this holiday that only fills singles like me with anxiety and resentment. It was created as an anti-Valentine made from vintage childrens' Valentine cards with decorative floral hankies. By the title alone, the saccharine sweetness of the materials were obliterated with  a sarcastic tongue-in-cheek statement on how I really felt about romance at the time....and sometimes still do.

I guess there's always hope for next year?
