Valentine Phantom Hearts up Montpelier

 Arrived in town on Monday and dropped off the car across from the Drawing Board, the beginning of the strip, so we could view all the hearts delivered to the city before daybreak.  A massive effort...seems to get bigger each year.  Who is this Valentine Phantom anyway?  No one is telling.  Pretty sweet.
 The tallest hearts...however did they get up there?
 Display in Capital Stationaries with some of the photos I took last year or perhaps the year before.
 Good idea to wear a red coat on this day.
 Such patterning takes time and organization
 Look at all that snow!
 Doesn't even look like a garden in front of our gallery anymore...and the phantom had to crawl through a lot of snow to get these hearts up...thanks Valentine Phantom

 Our favorite restaurant was closed on Monday...shucks, we wanted to have brunch.
So back to Skinny Pancake for brunch, which was delicious, then our gallery, Artisans Hand had its sign out and was open for business.  See, there is a path to the door in case you were wondering.
Yes, indeed I did work in the studio today and had a successful time on this painting, started last week, but brought to life today...this is only a detail.  I'll post more painting work tomorrow.
I hope your hearts are lightened and the energy is flowing.

Into the Valentine spirit... I've never seen anything like it!

Yes, Robyn, such a magical heartening. Our spirits rise which helps with the cold.

What fun that Valentine Phantom is having, and what a treat for Montpelier! And the painting looks terrific; you brought it to a fine resolution.
