This design was created with watercolours and brush only, just developing from the little yellow heart shape in the middle. The final touch was the torquoise background after all the images had been painted, which drew it all together. I see some little rabbits sneaked in at the bottom to help us think of warmer sunny days.

As you may have read in some of my post comments, I have a problem with my left thumb (I'm left handed of course!!) and cannot grip a pen or pencil without severe pain and discomfort. .. but using a brush is so different. As I wanted to create at least one heart on this auspicious day in the year (have you seen Margaret Anne Storer's**** gorgeous lacy hearts all week?), I decided a brush would have to do.

So Happy Valentine's Day to all you lovers. Hope you get lots of chocs and roses girls.

(****For Margaret's lovely hearts go to )

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day.

Your comment on my post GFGT War of Words as changed the course of my imagination. I have taken my worst nightmare and made it into a cute little sidekick for Grandfather Green Tie.

I name the little creature here for the first time. Rose Pearl was inspired by you and as I add more to that post this weekend, you'll see how much this little creature will change my novel.
