This week on The Month of Love, the theme is Favorite Love Story.
I painted this small tribute to e.e. cummings, Marion Morehouse, and the elephant valentines (which, if you've been reading my blog for a while, you know I adore).
Cummings painted a beautiful elephant valentine for his wife, Marion, every year. Nine of them live at the New York Public Library.
I love the idea of a specific animal acting as a symbol for the love shared by two people, especially an animal as beautiful and gentle as the elephant.
