Vincent in his chamber untying the leather laces of his shirt

LOVE … because of it



You might have discovered this image if you completed the Treasure Hunt this week.

It is, as well, part of a larger gallery of graphics.

The project – Love, Because of It – illustrates Vincent and Catherine’s more intimate time together, measured in a romantic (gauzy but not overly graphic) way, accompanied by a favored poem.

You can see that Gallery HERE.

I do hope you’ll come back after our Winterfest celebration ends. Thanks for visiting today!

I think I was searching for treasures or stones
in the clearest of pools
when your face…

when your face,
like the moon in a well
where I might wish…

might well wish
for the iced fire of your kiss;
only on water my lips, where your face…

where your face was reflected, lovely,
not really there when I turned
to look behind at the emptying air…

the emptying air.

Vincent and Catherine in bed, Catherine gazing down into his eyes. Beyond them, fireworks light the window.



  1. Oh, I just found your page and you can’t imagine how lovely this image is to me. It’s the characters from the first series I loved recreated with a scene from one of the few series that I think captured the spirit of B&B. It’s a great combination. Congratulations on this fanart.

    • Vanessa, Thank you! I’m so glad you visited and really glad you enjoyed this graphic. I’m pleased you recognized the image’s base! I agree with you about it capturing the spirit of BatB. Nothing else has come close, I don’t think.

      I hope you’ll come back for another look around the site. I’m encouraged to keep after the digital art because of your comments.

      My best,
