Spread A Little Love

pencil pet portrait by Levin "Mare and Foal" (private commission)
16x20
graphite on archival paper

What better day to post the finished pencil portrait of the mare and foal than Valentine's Day. Women love their horses and moms love their children. Ok, I admit I'm reaching here. That truly was meant to be humorous but the feel good intent was there. Honest it was.

In my opinion you shouldn't wait for a holiday to tell someone how you feel about them. It should be an every day event. (My valentine makes every day seem like Christmas but that's our little secret.) However, some folks are a bit shyer about expressing themselves so they need a little push. So, in the spirit of Valentine's Day, go out and spread a little love. Tell your friends and family that you are thinking of them. Make someone smile and you won't be able to help but smile yourself. Sweeten the moment with a little chocolate, it couldn't hurt!
