Nothing says romance like a face full of paint!
HA! Nah we're just kidding, Halle Berry and her french fiancé Olivier Martinez are NOT getting hearts painted on their faces for Valentine's day…
They commissioned special portraits from one of their favorite artists Alejandro Vigilante instead!
A far classier gift indeed!
After dining at Olivier's Villa Azur restaurant during a recent visit to Miami, the pair stopped by Avant Gallery Miami Beach where Halle and her boo decided to get each other a personal portrait for V-day.

Now that's a happily ever after!
El Lay artist Rodolfo Loaiza has taken Disney characters and pointed their peens together!!
He says of his daring collection:
"In this story, discriminated minorities will finally achieve the resolution they’ve yearned for, beyond any bias or phobia."
If that doesn't deserve an art class A+, then we don't know what does!
And some of his masterpieces don't have anything to do with sexual orientation. Some are just plain SILLEH! Like the one of Cinderella giving

Thomas Kinkade, whose paintings are estimated to be owned in one out of every 20 homes in the United States, died this past Friday. He was 52 and died of natural causes. An autopsy is scheduled for today.
His paintings were sneered at by high brow art critics, yet his work was pop-pop-popular making over 100 million dollars every year!
Kinkade struggled with alcohol addiction recently and had been separated from his wife, Nanette, for one year.

Look at this wonderful wool sculpture of Teddy specially hand crafted by the exquisitely talented artist Debra Alouise!
The soft wool sculpture almost perfectly captures Teddy and guess what?
She can do it for your pet too!
Debra has been an Equine Artist and horse owner for over 20 years, but her love for animals and art has led her to venture into other pet-tastic territory with oil paintings, sculptures, embroidered clothing, and even children toys that are fantastically fabulous!
If you are hankering for any pet memorabilia or a unique gift for friends or family, check out Debra's work here.
Thanks again for taking the time to immortalize Teddy for us, Debra!
