Day 45. Red Roses Valentine Bird

14 Feb


Is there anything that says “I love you” as quickly as red roses? Today’s Valentine Bird number 3 is inspired by that ultimate symbol of love. Now, some people, might disagree with me here. They might suggest some other “shiny” symbol. Something with clarity, color and cut. But I would argue these red roses also have clarity, color and cut and they have one more thing – they smell better. Try smelling that other shiny object of affection and you will have to agree. Roses are the ultimate symbol of love. Not to mention that you can buy these by the dozen. Happy Valentines.

Day 44. Valentine Chocolates Bird

13 Feb


Today’s Bird-A-Day art is inspired by one of my favorite holidays. Valentines. And one of the greatest gift ideas ever – chocolates! It seems that at some point man discovered that most women love chocolates. And by rule of association if a guy gives chocolates to the gal he loves, it only makes sense she would be that much sweeter – on him. Today’s Valentine bird 2 was created from a box of Whitman’s Sampler. I will admit, it was a big box and there were actually many more chocolates that some how – ummm, just never made it on the canvas. Hey, these things happen. Happy Valentines.

Day 41. Sweetheart Valentine Bird

10 Feb


Today starts the official Valentine’s weekend. Yes, I realize it’s next Tuesday on the 14th, but Valentine’s is a big holiday around our home. So I am starting early with Valentine bird number 1. I was surprised how easy it was to find these candy hearts in stores today. I remember them quite fondly from my childhood. When I was in 4th grade it was understood that you would give out one of these hearts with the proper message to all your class mates. Saving the special messages for the special Valentine hopefuls. Today’s hearts have changed a bit in that area. You might not be able to read the words on these hearts, but one of them actually says “Text Me.” When I was in 4th grade, my candy hearts’ message – was as close as it ever got to “Texting” anyone.” Yes it was a long time ago. So today’s Bird-A-Day is for my Valentine. “Follow Me.”
