That’s right… Ninjas have feelings too. And sometimes that feeling is love. But only sometimes.
This is my all time favorite painting EVER… And also the first painting I ever made for my boyfriend, John. He is the one who bought my first supplies to stretch my own canvas, and always told me to go paint whenever I got all “bitchy”.
I Painted this as a Valentine’s Day present for John, and you know me, I even express love with ninjas!! This was one of those ideas that came outta nowhere, and no matter how, I just had to pull it off. I hand stretched the canvas, and mixed acrylics like a manic until I created the perfect green(ish). I made him unwittingly pick out his own paint color, which as you see matches mine so well. I even used pink embroydery floss he gave to me for Christmas to make our heartstrings.
I know there is so much sap you wanna gag, but wait theres moooore…..
A little backstory: We split up for a while and during that time I celebrated my 2 year Anticancerversary. I decided on that day I would call him and thank him for everything he did for me, since without him I don’t think I would have made it. I cut all the heartsrings. So once we got back together I told him the meaning behind the phone call, and that Christmas I got pink floss, so we could rebuild our heartstrings.
All of this creates the perfect masterpiece for us… soaked in sap.
