Love is in the... beach

Art imitates life,... especially in my artwork. I was walking down the beach the day before Valentine's day and saw lots of young kids making out. Oh yeah,... I also saw cute kids making a big heart in the sand! Young love was definitely in the air! Although I hit myself for forgetting my sketchbook once again, the image remained permanently in my head until I finally got a pencil and paper in my hand. I drew this image in photoshop but transferred it to acetate and am in the process of making a silkscreen print of it. It's a lot of fun to have control over every aspect of your artwork again from the quality of lines to the various creation of color.
