2016’s Sweetest Little Thing submission took inspiration from a print by John Haney of a monarch butterfly with diamonds in it’s wing pattern, entitled King of Diamonds, so after a quick sketch (i don’t usually sketch these things!) i figured with my usual recycled materials plus a little rice paper and marker action, i could make my homage, the King of Hearts.

Sweetest Little Thing is an annual Valentines day art auction in Sackville NB, in support of both the Owens Art Gallery (where it’s held) and Struts Gallery and Faucet Media Art Centre. Locally, it’s a fun, family friendly party (replete with a cakewalk), but even if you are from afar, you can participate by submitting you high bid online, and have proxy bidders win that art for you, you lovers of art!
