Yesterday I had the joy of art all Valentine's Day. In the early afternoon I was very pleased to help my granddaughter's elementary school class to make Valentines. My daughter and I brought in ribbon, paper lace doilies, sparkly stickers and samples of Valentines in all shapes and sizes, colors and designs. The teacher, herself an artist, greatly added to the art fest! I was gifted with two beautiful Valentines from two very sweet children. I also learned a lot about art and design: kids are great teachers!
Later in the day, I went to a wonderful Valentine's Party to celebrate the marvelous New Yorker Cartoonist, Frank Modell and his extraordinary career. I met Frank a few times and he is a joyful person with a rapier wit. I grew up on his cartoons, which gave me much delight. Here is a web site with some of Frank Modell's cartoons: ENJOY! http://frankmodell.com/
