My Bloody Valentines

Debuting here for you all today, fresh off the easel!

Another installment in my FIRST BLOOD series, commemorating the historical roots of the approaching St Valentines Day. Little doth ye know that the origins of this holiday are not based in love, but in… BLOOD! As in the blood of 2-3 Priests / Bishops named Valentine in Ancient Rome who were Martyred by the Empire for being “outside the box.” Not to mention one of the best Crime Scene Sensations of the Prohibition / Speed Photography Gangster War era, the St Valentines Day Massacre. It’s not just a Hallmark Holiday, though it is now off the official catholic holiday calendar.

So hats off to history! Enjoy the new work. More to come soon…
