Touch their heart
Give the gift that will be remembered
Nothing is better than bringing joy to others, especially to those who have a special place in our hearts. Expressing to others what they mean to us in many ways is what life is all about. Love is transcendent and for D.Romeo, it’s the reason behind why he became an artist.
The beauty of his art is derived from the emotions that went into the creation and how it made the other person feel. He's not as focused on how it looks as he is on how its purpose is being communicated. For example, this is just a rose. However, he wanted the center to have an endless depth to express the many sides of the person for which it was painted. The spiraling effect also communicates how he was drawn in by their unique qualities. How is one’s unique depth shown within the simplicity of a single rose? In nature, a rose won’t look like that exactly. He used a variety of techniques to express this.
The beautiful thing about artistic expression is that the power of the expression dictates what comes to be. At Painted Paper Hearts, it's imperative that every one-of-one art piece is tailored to what needs to be communicated to the recipient.
A Painted Paper Heart is one in which the sender participates in its creation. They are taking something that is special to them and having it transformed into art to give the recipient an unforgettable experience. It will also be uniquely touched up so the card will be absolutely beautiful when looked upon. Each card will arrive in a box in lieu of an envelope because it's a gift card. The sender's written message will be placed within the card and the recipient will be required to open more than just the card to receive the message. This activity will give the message more charm and authenticity. They will remember the moment.
This was done in watercolor and lightly finished off with soft pastels. The real-life version is of course much larger. Now that you know why it was created, you can see what you likely didn't see before.
