BLOGLANDIA POLAR FESTIVAL ENTRY

Please Click here to join the festival and meet other new amazing artist friends
Bloglandia Polar Festival is a little blog party to share works of art made for the festival and meet new blog friends. Leave them a comment and join the fun.
The official date of the party is Feb. 9th

This is a post of my Queen of Sheba Valentine project. I painted her to shrink down and put on this little jewel of a Charm. You wear her near your heart because 'Where ever your Treasure is there your thoughts and Heart will be also." I made 52 of these charms for a Valentine charm swap. I was so happy with the oil painting I painted after a 14oo's painting of Sheba. And the photograph of the little charm in the shell is such a little jewel I wanted to share her with my new friends at the Polar Fest.

So welcome new friends and I look forward to seeing your wonderful creations too!
