Foole for Love

- by Shelly Bedsaul

This week's theme: Be Mine

Valentine's Day is this Saturday. Thanks to Middle Ages and courtly love, this date has long been the day of declarations of love and lovers. More recently, it has become not just a day for those in love but a day when we let all of those we care about know just how much they mean to us. It doesn't matter whether you choose to bestow flowers and chocolates, a card and a kiss or a just few simple words. It's feelings you express that are the true gift.


Art: Foole for Love by Artist Shelly Bedsaul
Valentine's Day is coming and it made me think of the silly things we girls do in the name of romance. We just overdo everything. Makeup, hair, clothing and even the fantasies we build up about our frog princes. My little foole has done all that and you can tell by her stance and her expression that she is just not grounded in reality, but we've got to love her anyway. Where would the world be without fruffy little hearts and roses and the fooles that love them? She's drawn on archival rag board using Prismacolor pencils and Pigma Micron Archival Ink. It is sprayed with a matte acrylic coating to seal and give it a velvety finish.
