RED AND PINK AND CHOCOLATY ...

I hope everyone is having a wonderful VALENTINE DAY !

Ours has been mellow and quiet and affectionate family-style. The guys wanted sushi for this special occasion so I made tons of it for supper while Ulysse saranaded me with his newly acquired guitar-player talents. Francois did not get to finish his gift on time, a new metal sculpture, but I forgive him, it will be a belated gift later this week. Tonite, we watched a few movies while eating tons of assorted chocolate

The day is almost over but I wanted to take a few minutes to wish you a

RED and PINK and CHOCOLATY VALENTINE DAY !

Hugs and kisses to you all!

On a different note, thanks to each of the 96 bloggers who have participated in my JUST BECAUSE giveaway. You left wonderful and heart-warming comments about my blog and my art and I appreciate them all !

The winner of my JUST BECAUSE giveaway is:

VANESSA at oohlaladesignstudio !!! Vanessa is a New York illustrator who's work is so spiffy and hip and beautiful and alive, it is just perfect ! When you have a second, you should check it out !

This giveaway has been so much fun that I promised I will be having another one soon! And I will wait till the winner of both my giveaways receive their prizes before showing you a picture of them. Remember, they were both SURPRISE giveaways!

I have worked a 3 different paintings at a time and they are almost finished. I should be able to list them in my Etsy store and on eBay, tomorrow or Monday.

That is, if I don't die of cocoa overdose !!!
