Every year I stumble across natural hearts in nature. I take them as signs of love. Here is a new one I found this morning at the senior center. I'm doing a little sketch of it in my journal. John had been demonstrating gold leafing and one of the gals saw my leaf and wanted to gold leaf it, but I thought it was too glorious, as is.
Keep your eyes and hearts open for natural signs of love. I never look for them, they just appear from time to time. And if I'm lucky I have my camera handy.
One I missed years ago was my friend Pauline's sons' koi, a white one with a red heart on its side. Pauline believed in signs. I miss her.
This is the leaf I found on a geranium growing in a small pot on my deck - a week or so ago. Much like the following one which I found a previous year.
I'm not sure what is eating these little holes. I appreciate them.
You may remember I photoshopped it and changed it to the next photo.
The Mixed Media group is going to make a collaborative Valentine booklet. I have the pattern made and the papers folded, now just to cut them and pack up things to add to the pages that I do, one in each book. We will be passing them around the big tables, each one decorating their own page. I'll be showing mine here when it's done.
