Really nice work.

For something that looks simplistic (and I mean that in the kindest way), this image is far from that. The subtleties are ... well, exquisite. The detail in the hands and fingers, the reflected light of the heart in the hand and on the heart ... nice.

I like that you have managed to create some 'depth,' as well, to your piece. Both, in the artistic sense ... the purple setting and additional hearts, looks like the interior of a jewelry box ... and in the touching sentiment expressed in the words.

Again, really nice. 'Nuff said.
