"L" is for Loving Heart #atozchallenge

"L" is for Loving Heart in the 2016 A to Z Blog Challenge.

In today's heart addition to "So Many Hearts Dancing in the Air", it's good to stop and consider what is a loving heart? My mother used to say, "He has a heart of gold." I thought about her words as I considered how to complete this little painting. That's why I added more texture to my heart and then covered those ridges with gold acrylic paint. Today's background is more mystic as well.

What do you think of a heart of gold? Is it a loving heart?

I love the texture of the heart.

Mary Montague Sikes said...

Thank you, Diane. A knowing heart would be a textured heart.

Alice Gerard said...

I like the glittery, textured heart.

Billie Johnson said...

Considering my history...I prefer a beating heart!!!

Love your work, Monti!

Mary, you already know I love everything you paint! I am still in awe of the amazing turtle painting you did for my anniversary. I actually went back and reread all our back and forth leading up to its completion. I hope to commission another work soon :)
Oh, and I love this heart of gold.

PS yours is the first site I have visited is a long time and I'm glad you are doing the A-Z again! I enjoy those posts the most.

Take care,

Great heart and love the texture and the gold. I am like your mom, I always think very positive thoughts when it comes to the saying heart of gold.

Thank you, Alice, for your visit!

Billie, maybe I should have used beating heart for "B" instead of broken heart. Thanks!!!

Chuck, how good to hear from you! Thank you so much for your visit and for the nice compliments. Would love to do another work for you!

Birgit, Positive thoughts are the very best. I believe they improve people's health.
