ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Deirdre Freeman walks the mile from her home, lugging a large, colorful painting and tote bag carrying her necessary supplies — a hammer and nails.

She has already carefully chosen a busy intersection to hang her largest “heartwork” painting yet on a telephone pole in hopes of reaching as many people as possible to put smiles on faces and simply spread some much-needed love to the masses.

This acrylic on canvas is 18 inches by 24 inches with a red heart over whimsical designs.

This project all began two years ago with Freeman cutting small paper hearts and sending them all over the world.
