Living in Arizona, there are so many things to do. My husband and I love to hike and had friends who did too. Our friends had hiked the Chiricahua National Monument Mountains in the area called ’Heart Of Rocks.’ The good news, you park two cars, one at the start of the hike and another one at the end of the hike. So what does that have to do with the painting? We ended up being down on a Mexican boarder town. We walked around to see what was there. I saw a group of Mexican terra cotta pots and took a few photos. I thought it would be a great change from my pots and jars series. I loved the little hearts on one of the pots and conjured up the title. Hmmm, red hearts and white lips, kinda kinky!
