Valentine

Valentine is the theme for Creative Tuesday this time!
In keeping with my bird drawings, I decided Mr. Barn Swallow
would be a cute postman delivering loving sentiments to
all of the mailboxes! Valentine's Day is a great time to
remember all the people you care for. It isn't only
for romance, is it? No, I want to say "I love you" to
all of my sweet friends who visit here!

  7. Aww, thanks Brian! I've really been trying to work on the depth and shadowing...trying to make it more 3D and not so childish. ha.

  15. jennyfreckles ~ thanks, dear. :) I started off with just the bird and thought I'd try to add more to it...something that would give it a little more interest. I thought it had that quaint, old look to it, too!

  17. That is wonderful! And I agree that Valentine's Day isn't only for romance, and in fact I feel it's more a family holiday at this point. I think it's so nice that way!

  35. It's so strange for me to think of Valentine's Day as being cold. It's almost 100 degrees every day where I live in Australia right now! Valentine's chocolates don't stand a chance.

    Love your drawing, it's really lovely!
