Being obssessed as I am with illustrating my theories (an idee' fixe that predates my jewelry design profession), here are some images that go with what I dwelt on before, namely a difference between romantic & sentimental.
What could be sweeter than children? And yet, one image here is sweet without being sticky, while the other...
And the reason I got the sentimental image in the first place is that if you combine it with the 'naughy Jane' girl, you get a juicy bit of gossip piece right there!
Pure potential! Not sweet at all! Sour! And, most importantly, not romantic!
