<![CDATA[Valentine's Day Van Gogh style]]>Thu, 10 Feb 2022 19:49:12 GMThttps://helpingthroughthearts.org/session-blog/valentines-day-van-gogh-styleWe found a cute wood frame just in time for Valentine's Day. We had a relaxingly wonderful time experimenting with acrylic paints on the wood. It was a bit different than painting on canvas but it still yielded some great results. We gave it a little twist by adding a bit of chalkboard paint... Now this tribute to Van Gogh's Bearded Irises has a place to write a little note to it!
