Valentine's Day is no longer about romantic encounters for me, I would rather snuggle with my kitties and mail heartsappy cards to my best friends.
But it is a time for me to reflect on all the bad choices I have made over the years in men and I decided to artwork it up.

I have this game where when I get to know someone and they keep saying the same things over and over again, I remark that the phrase should end up on their gravestone.

So, here are six cards representing six guys from the past 30 years.












The names have been changed to protect the innocent.

I am too pooped to improve upon the washed out pics. You get the idea!!

Charcoal pencil mostly with a touch of watercolor because of course I had to add the obligatory Valentine hearts.

I actually really like the washed out look. Makes them look like old and faded gravestones Smiley

Good grief.  Not only am I surprised but when I uploaded the awful pics I thought there was no way it would garner much interest just due to that.

but yippeee!!
