I love Valentine's Day! It is my absolutely favorite holiday. Now, I know some people think it is over rated and you should not just once a year share your love and well I DO NOT! I share it every day but this holiday has always been a true holiday. It is all about LOVE! The one holiday my Dad never ever ever was drunk on. It is not about the gifts because I have had more Valentine's Day without gifts. I love it because of love is everywhere. It is such a positive holiday. Now, I understand some are down because they do not have someone or feel that way. Well, I have never felt that way even when I was single or without a date. You can find love with your friends or family.
I came across this saying while on Pinterest. "Every Love Story is Beautiful, but OURS is my FAVORITE." I knew I wanted to make a painting to place on my mantel at that moment. I thought it would be great to add two birds in the mix as well. Once I had that idea, I knew exactly what I wanted.
I am thrilled with the way it turned out. Here is a picture of my background.
Once the background dried, I made my branch with the hearts in place of the leaves.
Then added my birds.
Here is a close up of the birds and the branch.
Last, I added the saying.
You know, I am so happy with the way it turned out,
I almost do not want to pack it away after Valentine's Day.
I may need to find a place to hanging it permanently.
