Hello my dear blogging friends
I was thinking about my mother and missing her today. She died almost 5 years ago, but today for some reason I'm missing her. She was an amazing lady, kind , funny , intelligent, creative and beautiful. She did many amazing creative things but toward the end of her life she fell in love with watercolors and every painting she did was filled with love. I am lucky to have just a few and I thought I'd show them to you.
Mom loved flowers, especially geraniums and even after she moved into a condo she had the balcony filled with pots of geraniums. She especially liked those soft peach color ones and the pale pink ones and would always buy the biggest pots she could find. Geraniums were her favorite subject. This one called Flowers of Friendship, hangs above the mantle in our TV room. (The photo doesn't do it justice and has a reflection of pictures on the opposite wall on it.) It's quite large, 28"x36"This one called A Pot of Daffodils greets you as you come in our front door and looks nice against the yellow walls.Mom called this one My Garden in a Jar. Delphiniums are one of my favorite flowers (and they don't grow well here at all) so I was really happy to get this one. I love the blues in it and it goes perfectly with the blue of our bedroom walls.
Here is a close up.
Whenever I look at these paintings I think of my mom. My mom passed on her love of flowers and gardens and everything creative. I love you mom!
