Born 1906 Reading Died 12 May 1960
Today is worlds woman’s day and I wanted to blog today and wanted to do something but unsure what and thinking about how female dominated the face painting world can be I wanted to share with you the painting by Evelyn Dunbar an artist working in a very male domated role.
She was the only women on a full time salary working for the war artists , recording women’s contributions to World War II life on the home front, particularly the work of the Women’s Land Army. Dunbar had a deep devotion to nature and I love the way that comes across in her paintings, a love of all things earthy .
Red Roses chocolates and lots of love is all I require for Valentines day this Year.
St valentine did not have such a good day on 14th Feb 273 AD , he was beheaded for performing Christian marriages in secret, his flower adorned skull is display in the Basilica of Santa Maria in Rome.
St valentine is the patron saint of beekeepers and epilepsy marriage and of course Love.
The first Valentine’s Day card was sent by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. He remained a prisoner of war for the next twenty-four years
This valentines day put on your best Red Lippy and raise a Glass to St Valentine.
