Artist's description:

This is one of five valentines that I created back in 2015. These paintings are mixed media. Basically, I used a white candle to draw the heart designs, then painted the entire paper with the paint. The candle wax prevents the paint from adhering to the paper and you end up with an image such as this one. When I was a child, I tried this technique with crayons. It worked okay but I found that the white (it has to be white or it would leave a colored mark on the paper) candle worked best. I hope you enjoy it and will consider purchasing one of these valentines for your loved one. Valentines 1 and 2 were given as gifts to each of my granddaughters and they hang in the girls' bedrooms.

Materials used:

Archival professional grade watercolor paint and candle wax

Valentine 4 (2015)
