Description:

’Love waxes + wanes, except for ice-cream (hearts) by Su_G': Love tho' constant, waxes & wanes, except for ice-cream. A love letter in hearts on ice-cream. See here for the textural detail. © Su Schaefer 2013

'Love waxes & wanes but is constant' was the design idea for this love letter in hearts on ice-cream (see swatch view, detail above or here, for the texture; the background design is 'Ice-cream for love by Su_G'). © Su Schaefer 2013

I was sure the phrase was from a Shakespearean sonnet. The phrase is not, but the sentiment is in Sonnet 16:

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering barque,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

Oil on canvas, basic repeat.

su_g says: Thanks so much for your great comment Boo - and yeah I'm not really a hearts type either - so this was definitely an exception! Hence the silly title I guess... And I love the way you continue the metaphor with your heart - or - double (ice-cream) cone!! <3 So funny!

rhondadesigns says: This is a delectable design, Su! The pretty hearts make me think of crisp toffee shapes adrift on a sea of luscious smooth and creamy icecream! I am sure that if Shakespeare had been living in an age when icecream was available to him, he would have written a wonderful sonnet or ode extolling it's virtues!
