Valentine Cards by Montero
There was a running joke about my mother when I was growing up. It was said that if you were still too long, Mom would paint you.
Over time my mother would paint just about anything. At one point in time she began using watercolors to paint greeting cards. These one of a kind card would go out to friends and family over the years. There are only a few of these cards left.
The Valentine Cherubs happily dance over greeting cards and notecards.
Valentine's Day is also known as St. Valentine's Day or the Feast of St. Valentine. It is a day that is celebrated around the world, however, it is considered a normal working day for the average person.

Sometimes material objects on Valentines Day are not enough to express the level of undying love you have for your partner; sometimes you need to add a memorable quote to really touch the heart.
The first association of Valentine's Day and romantic love can be found in Chaucer's Parlement of Foules.
Now there is a whole industry of poems, cards, candy and hearts to share love in all it's many forms.

Many of the Valentine Cards Montero painted tended to be sent to young people in her life. The Valentine Cherub joined many others such as the Christmas Cherub and the Easter Cherub. I have also found the Fourth of July Cherub and the Halloween Cherub.
Montero loved to paint and I am discovering more and more of her wonderful paintings I hope to share with you.
