february project no 3...gouache hearts

for the third heart project, i completed a set of mini gouache illustrations.  as of late, i've been dodging drawing and painting as i feel out of practice. so last night i painted whatever came to mind...no planning or overthinking...just a few doodles on scraps of black paper.

the first is based on little a's sweet little heart...last week she ran up to me and said mommy, i love you with all my heart...so i painted something to remember the moment.

the second one started off as an experiment with brush strokes...and turned into layers of the earth and sky...

i worked into the night listening to a mix of raindrops and my favorite soundtracks.
