Love is......?

In addition to the "dessert" paintings
some of us are doing for the 
I had six 7th and 8th grade girls come to the studio this week 
to do small "heart" paintings to sell and donate the proceeds.

I bought eighteen 4 x 4 gallery wrapped canvas's,
and spray painted them black.
Then made a heart stencil that would fill the square 
(a la Jim Dine) and let them do whatever they wanted.
 For inspiration, we had them think about a title 
starting with "Love is.....?"

Here a just a few samples,
although every one of them is priceless. 
"Love is Bubbly"
"Love is on Fire"

"Love Grows"

"Love Fades"

"Love is in the Stars"

A fun project and for such a great cause! 
These will be sold $20 each.
Great job girls! 


  1. What a terrific idea. I love seeing all the work together and for a good cause.
