Love for a Valentine ~ Liefde voor een Valentijn

.
Something for Valentine's Day (Valentijnsdag).


copyright 2008, Judith Nijholt-Strong
"Valentine's Greeting"
Watercolor and gouache on Bockingford wc paper.
Digitally manipulated frame.
*NFS*

"Mom"(Judy) did the painting of the bouquet of roses (rozen) and I picked out the licorice (drop) heart (hart) for the frame ... :o)"Mom" initially painted the heart in gouache, then digitally manipulated the tiny painting to place in this frame - she likes to play around with digi-manips.

Ik hou van jou (I love you)

Zoet (Sweet)

Valentijn (Valentine)

Hier is mijn hart (Here is my heart)

If you want to know how to say "words of love" in Dutch, then listen to Brenno de Winter's wonderful Dutch language podcast, "Laura Speaks Dutch" (click on the two links below):


Will you be my Valentine? ... and... Talking to your sweetheart.


We hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day!

Liefs (love),
Sacha & Judy

Those roses are so beautiful, Judy!
Perfect for Valentine's Day. And Sacha, I like your choice of "drop harten", too:)

Groetjes,
Mineke.
