Smooch Blossoms. TAVolgenau. 2018
To My Valentine Ogden Nash, 1941
More than a catbird hates a cat,
Or a criminal hates a clue,
Or the Axis hates the United States,
That's how much I love you.
I love you more than a duck can swim,
And more than a grapefruit squirts,
I love you more than a gin rummy is a bore,
And more than a toothache hurts.
As a shipwrecked sailor hates the sea,
Or a juggler hates a shove,
As a hostess detests unexpected guests,
That's how much you I love.
I love you more than a wasp can sting,
And more than the subway jerks,
I love you as much as a beggar needs a crutch,
And more than a hangnail irks.
I swear to you by the stars above,
And below, if such there be,
As the High Court loathes perjurious oathes,
That's how you're loved by me.
Limited Edition Replicas. A new and unique offering to keep replicas of TAVolgenau paintings original, but still quite accessible to followers. With the TAVolgenau Limited Edition option, I basically order a high-quality replica of the selected artwork for you on stretched canvas with a 1.5" gallery-wrap to be delivered to my Colorado art studio. Once I receive the piece I will then add great attention and freshly painted strokes of my stylistic, intricate detailing, predominantly with iridescent/metallic acrylic paints and send to you (estimate of 4-6 weeks). Uniquely yours by Teresa Anne Volgenau.
