Since I am completely broke this time around after some heavy purchasing, a painting should suffice. For the world’s best kid/little sister. Not exaggerating. She seriously is the best (although at times gets on my nerves. Hahahaha).

‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.Alfred Lord Tennyson

Completed over a span of three days. Few mins per day. One of those times when you just don’t want to do anything; art being the least of your worries. Dedicated to the month of love – February *groans*
