Treat your sweeetheart, or yourself! to a one-of-a-kind handpainted Valentine.  If you want to go down a fun little rabbit trail, google "sailor's valentines" and you can read about the charming souvenirs that sailors would send home to their sweethearts from their exotic travels.  These original watercolor paintings are my take on the sailor's valentine, the designs made with watercolors for the background and "shell" pressed floral accents to create the geometric shapes and patterns.

Each pressed floral in these paintings are grown on our farm, and varieties include:

cosmos

flax

queen anne's lace

campion

aster

goldenrod

and many more.

Each painting is bordered in a complementary Italian Florentine paper, and the mat board also features this decorative paper accent.

Framed in classic gold, the outer dimension measures 12" x 12".
