A celestial Saint Valentine bouquet to my readers
My friends on Facebook must endure many seasonal images, I pick a theme, often holiday based, then produce a daily image.
I’m sure I try the patience of many a kind soul, they tactfully refrain from mentioning it. I appreciate the indulgence.
As this is the season of love, the theme was of course putti.If you can handle sweetness, sometimes cloying, I hope you will enjoy this offering.
The first being the last, I will post this image of Boucher’s Three Putti with Birds tomorrow. As is the case with romantic painters such as Francois, you either love his work or cannot abide it, I of course delight in its rosiness.

As it is Saint Valentine’s Eve, I am neglecting the Beloved, who is getting increasingly cranky.
I must depart dear Reader.
Take care and have a romantic day!
