DC Proverb or Saying

It 's all just a love contest
and I never lose.
Now you have another good reason
to spend more time


Patrice chose the theme for this weeks Drawing Challenge. It's proverb or saying.
I had a very hard time choosing, but read this poem by the Sufi poet Hafiz
which I have always loved and decided to use it to jump off of....
Into a bouquet of flowers.
Check out Patrice's blog for more!
