From the HeART



What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with a gift of art?

Pictured above is Maggie's Map, a 12" X 12" mixed media painting on board. I painted it as a companion to New Slang (which you've seen before, Illustration Friday).



This commission was for a young mother who wanted to give her daughters paintings, hopefully to inspire a lifelong love of art. The mother described her daughters' personalities, interests, and favorite colors, and I took it from there.

I would love work with you to create something, using personal mementos, quotes, or poetry. If you are interested in commissioning an original painting, e-mail me at kathymccullen@aol.com.

I do love your use of colour in your abstract paintings Kathy. In fact, I would definitely put you down as inspiration for looking more into this art form. I bought a new book called Accessible Abstracts this week and have been devouring it as much as time allows. I can't wait to try something a little different.

a very special gift. It's quite a challenge to do work for others like this...I know I just completed a commission that luckily the recipient loved.

I love it, Kathy! Especially the red snoopy on the left with the blue tongue hanging out. Or am I the only on who sees that? Congratulations on all your success.
