Burning heart with peas ('tis better to have crashed than to have stayed in the garage)





























This is for my pea lover...who likes to try and sneak stray peas into places where peas don't belong (like custard, shoes, belly buttons, soft furnishings, stir fries, sandwiches, tea, water bottles, Hank Williams' nostrils, Johnny Cash songs and the bath tub). Mind you, that's the worst thing I can say about my lovely Paul. I'll put up with that thank you very much. He didn't want a card for Valentine's Day, and neither did I. We don't need a "Special Day" or a commercially made greeting card or chocolates to say I love you and all that shrubbery. We have chocolate and shrubbery every day. But I did want to draw something. So here it is.

I crashed into a burning heart with peas, I went down, down, down, but the peas they outdid me and they burned burned burned, those big green peas, those big green peas...

For my lovely Paul, pastels on black card.

I like peas to, but sounds like Paul is a pea fanatic [I wonder if he likes pea soup? yuck].
I like each one of these, your pastel work is great and lucky Paul!
i like the words you inserted for Johnny cash's Ring Of Fire-fun and catchy!
