Happy Valentine

The heart in my Studio beam was carved by Bill Bruce for Pat, when they lived here and ran The Old Clock Shop.

if: popularity

This weeks Illustration Friday topic is Popularity.

My dictionary says "The quality or state of being popular, especially the state of being widely admired, accepted, or sought after."

In the UK it is fashionable to have a tree or vase of branches which you decorate throughout the year. Valentine hearts, replaced by easter eggs, replaced by birthday letters, replaced by Christmas baubles.

A solitary snowdrop has flowered in the garden. The ground is frozen.
I am suddenly very busy selling advertising space for South East Open Studios.
Plus I have a new stockist for my cards and prints.
Contemplating a new print technique, perhaps linocuts. I am not good with tools.
In the meantime there are poppies, lots and lots of poppies.
