We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.
I got a in person delivery at my door today. I got red tulips and heart shaped candies. I know, romantic right?
Except they’re from my dad.
My dad is a sweetheart. I also got the cutest handmade card from my crafty mom in the mail. Love doesn’t have to be romantic (though that is nice too).
I haven’t had any romance today, instead I just pored myself a bitter drink (a red one, my favorite) and brought out my art journal.
Wishing you a great day, how ever you celebrate I suggest you make something of it!
That’s nice loving ! I love tulips so much ! I hope you shower yourself with LOVE too !
That’s so nice of your Dad to send those beautiful flowers! My sister and I were on the phone this morning, remembering how our father used to surprise us with heart-shaped boxes of chocolate candy each Valentine’s day and a big box of chocolate truffle’s for our mother. He was such a sweetie! Thanks for sharing your treats, Hanna!
What lovely parents you have.
Hey. One thing I’ve learned from 27 years of partnership is that there are some years that you just don’t have lots of hearts and flowers!
But happiness and creativity is always ready. We choose happiness and creativity!
I am married, but getting divorced, we still live together, because of money problems, I want to get away asap, and even though valentines day is just another day, I feel so alone,I am such a romantic person, alll thoughts of love and fairy tails are gone, love your parents, they are wonderful so were mine,you can depend on them, they will love you unconditionally, they both died 6 and 7 yrs ago, and I have missed them everyday since.
thanks for letting me vent, sharon mallory
What a nice gesture! :o)
Your parents are amazing!!! :)
Hi Hanna — I so love your blog! Quick question: I am having trouble locating those artist water color blocks (Winsor & Newton) you used on a previous entry.You talked about oxide of chromium and green olive, etc. I can’t even find them on Google! Any info you can give me would sure be appreciated. Your art is inspiring me to get back into making art.
Hi Lynn, thanks for your kind words. Windsor and Newton has a large colour chart of watercolours and a list of nearest retailers on their site. I think you could ask for Artist Water Colour Half pans in any artist shop! I hope that helps!
