The love of friends

Valentine's Day - for me - is about love of God, family and friends.  I wanted to play a bit with glazes and wanted the painting itself to be fairly simple - so here it is.  It's a 6x12" canvas and for something relatively simple it took me a while to complete.  As I refurbish my Etsy shop (like right now) I plan to add this painting.  For now - I'm linking to Pia's Mix It Monthly challenge (here).  For February the challenge is pets - I do have a cat but it doesn't look like either of these.  I like my birds outside of the house.  But any of these could be pets.  Thanks for stopping by and have a healthy and art filled day.
