There's something about the heart image that intrigues us. For quite a few years, Heart Art has fascinated me. I enjoy searching the Internet for heart images. They come in all shapes and colors. I've found lovely pastel paintings in many different heart compositions. One particularly memorable painting features a heart shape cut in a wall that is defined by the clouds and color of the sky showing through.

I like to explain to the children I teach that hearts are not just for Valentine's Day. I show them a variety of art works in various colors, sizes, and formats. After seeing these creative pieces of Heart Art, the children always go on to paint an amazing variety of beautiful images that are not Valentines at all.
I love Heart Art and like to display it year round. Valentines are nice, too.
