HAPPY MOTHERS DAY...

To my mom, a profound thank you for teaching me it is okay to be different!  For encouraging me to be all that I dreamt of...for showing me how to step outside the box!!!  My mom is my biggest fan of anything I do.  If I show her artwork - she always loves it!  If I say I want to fly - she tells me I can!  She is a woman of courage - even though she shudders on the inside - she walks tall and is an inspiration to any that met her!

me and my mom at last years Artists' by the Lake show!
to me my mom preaches Merry Everyday so is the inspiration for this painting which I put as the cover to her calendar I did for 2011!!!

my mom at 6 years old

SOOOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY MOTHERS DAY...to my other mom's.... Aunt Carol, Aunt Myrna, Aunt Norma, Sandy and to my daughter in law Becky mom of 3 of our grandchildren!  Chelsea, daughter in law to be next weekend mom to 2 of our grandchildren and Mark's daughter Jen - mom of 2 of our grandchildren.  I must say that these 3 girls are mom's to be admired.  I am so proud to know them and have them in my life!

cheers!  enjoy your day ladies! (sharing with Sunday Sketches - thanks to Sophia for hosting)

Beautiful tribute to your mom. Love the painting you did. I was thinking of making up calendars with my artwork for some of my family members. I just may have to do that for Christmas this year.
