Because of this being close to Mother's Day and being busy the end of the week I think I will do postings about that, and grandmother.
My mom painted a lot also, however she didn't start at age 19 like I did, she started in her fifties. Now as I think of it, I am glad she had this pleasure, I have thought this for a long time, once one leaves the self-centered stage of life you can appreciate the things and have better understanding of what your parents were about. As years pass I understand better only because I have experienced some of what she said. My mother was not an easy going person or an easy person at all, but I get it now. Like she said, someday you will know. Someday is here and has been for a while.
This is one of her paintings, it is oil and done with a palette knife. It is one that I have up in my house and one I liked best.
