Valentine’s Day is a day for love and rekindling passion, so how did all those fluffy bears and candy shaped hearts find their way into this special day? This year, forgo the expendable items and give your someone special a meaningful gift that lasts a lifetime – ART! Just like true love, art has no shelf life and will be adored and valued for years into the future.
Paintings and photographs of flowers are better than store bought bouquets any day, because you can have fresh, elegant flowers that brighten your space year round! So surprise your sweetie with a portrait of a flower for V Day!
Bonita William’s intimate portrait of a red rose encapsulates why this flower reigns as the supreme symbol of passionate affection, and will definitely add heat to any space.
Orchids are another flower associated with love. Sarah Margaret Gibson brings softness and sensuality to the room with her delicate depiction of this sculptural beauty.

Keep it simple AND sweet! The simplicity of an endearing embrace sealed with a kiss is all one could really ask for on Valentine’s Day, so capture this moment with a piece of art. Every time you and your love look at it you’ll be reminded of how much you mean to one another. Reminiscent of Klimt’s kiss, Larry Forgard’s work is a great way to tastefully showcase passion in an everyday space like a living room.
For those of you who are fans of Rodin’s The Kiss, or perhaps Brâncuși’s version, Mark Yale Harris’ piece is the perfect blend of traditional and contemporary. Both strength and sweetness are represented in his sleek design.
Art can instantly add a fiery heat or a soft sweetness to any space - either way make this Valentine’s Day count with an everlasting work of art.
