on this day 
i do not have anything
expensive gift to give you
and not even
a dinner date on a fancy restaurant

but as i have promised
i have here my first ever

i love you
always in all ways...
happy valentine...
waiting home to give you
my warm kisses
and tight hugs...

 i used to draw
sticks for arms and legs
and oval for the body
i use letter L for nose
and a first quarter moon for mouth
a big apple for the eyes
and a watermelon for the head...

borrowing the top of the corn
for the hair
and bananas
as fingers.
i opted to use a triangle
and pretend that it is a pair of shoe
as to not knowing how to 
draw a pair of feet.

but with your encouragement
i was able to hold 
quite a number of brushes
and learned to mixed paints. 

after two errors
including a spill of coffee
i was finally able 
to come up with this... 
happy valentines!
