February is the month we all stress about Valentine’s Day and what to get that special someone…or what to do if that special someone has not yet appeared.
Special Someone doesn’t have to be the Lover in your life. It can be your Mother, Father, Grandparent, Son, Daughter, or any Special Person that means the world to you and you just can’t imagine life without them there by your side.

I know you probably read the title of this blog and thought you were going to see a bunch of kids’ portraits for Easter, right? I hope you aren’t disappointed. I wanted to do something a little more original this year. I want to display a portrait of Easter.
Are you wondering what I mean by that? How would you paint (or create) a portrait of Easter? East conjures so many memories and so many meanings….each is different for ever individual person that reads this.
When I think of Easter, I think of the childhood memories with my familly…the new outfit my grandmother had made for me, the Easter basket with candy and toys, the church service that would be taking place that Sunday…and the dinner and egg hunt that would happen after church.
I also think of the symbolism (for me) and this may of course be different for you….we each have our own thoughts, images, and memories that make up what we believe and how we perceive things.
If I was to create a “Portrait of Easter”, I would start with a glorious sunrise filled with birdsongs on a cool but not chilled foggy morning…..though this isn’t a foggy morning…it is a golden sun:
You know: it’s that day that you bring cards and candy for everyone in class!
Who doesn’t have a favorite childhood memory of Valentine’s Day and emptying your decorated sack or box of Valentines to see what your friends have given you this time!
I hope you enjoy this Valentine’s Day…it’s a great day to let your friends know they are special. We commercialize it and capitalize on the fact that this is THE day that you are suppose to buy that special someone something expensive OR be in the doghouse! Valentine’s Day is a day of love and appreciation. There are so many specialpeople in our lives that we take for granted every day. Take one day out of the year (other than their birthday) to surprise them and tell them they mean something to you. Life is busy! The tides RUSH in and RUSH right back out. It never stops! Don’t wait. Share the love, the friendship, the memories! today!
