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?
