Watercolor on Rice Paper-it's about love

Watercolor painting on rice paper, something a little different in honor of LOVE, a holiday celebrated and called Valentine's Day here in the U.S.

There are many legends about the origins of this holiday and it's sentiments, but one of the most notorious expositions about love is found in the Bible, in 1 Corinthians 13.

Love extends not only to lovers, but also parents, children, grandparents, friends, neighbors, strangers, needy and not so needy. 

Because it is easy to love lovely people, the Bible also instructs followers of Christ to "love your enemies"  That's hard! The Bible also teaches to love by action...and not tolerate evil. Things to ponder for Valentine's Day!
