And here is my card image -- very close
to finished. There've been some changes
since you last saw it.
Why a bluebird? After my mother died
on Canadian Thanksgiving in 2013,
my friend took me for a walk in our
neighbourhood park with her dog to
comfort me. High in the branches of
an improbable tree was the
most magnificent and improbable bird --
a blue bird. I'd never seen one before.
And it felt like a gift of love.
Et voilà, as we say in French -- there it
is. The two are linked in my mind, and
here in this little image for my card.
I hope you are planning a love filled
week -- whether with family, a special
someone, or a friend. Spread the love.
That's the bluebird's message
Have a spreading-the-love day
o Barbara seeing that bluebird was such a gift. i believe birds can be spirit messengers. how lovely your valentine painting
It was a gift. That may be true. When someone you love dies, the entire world is imbued with a deep significance. And birds have always held a special place in my heart.
Happy Valentine's Day to you!
