Valentines Dessert Art 1 – 4.5″ x 4.5″ Watercolor

It’s Valentines week, so I made you sweet treats that won’t put a single inch on your waistline.  There’s one for each day of the week.  Mo from WetCanvas posted a tray full of yummy treats from York, in the UK.  Rumor over at WetCanvas has it that these treats came from Betty’s Tea Room.

About Shakti Gawain

American New Age author Shakti Gawain was born in 1948. Raised by atheists who taught her to question everything, she went through an existential crisis after a romantic breakup, which led her on a pilgrimage to India. Her experiences inspired the book Creative Visualization, which became an international best seller. She has been featured in Time magazine and has appeared on such shows as Oprah, Good Morning Americav and The Larry King Show. She currently lives in California with her husband Jim Burns.

      Fortunately, it was on another continent, where I couldn’t get my hands on it. 🙂 The photographer took a pic of a whole display case of goodies. I just picked and painted 5 of them for this week’s Valentine’s greetings. Thanks for coming by to comment, Linda!

      Of course… no calories here. Bonnie (Artastic over at WetCanvas) has been painting with some watercolors that have food smells. That would have been a rough way to paint these…. I don’t know if I would like the way watercolor paper tastes. he he he 🙂
