Wonderful leaf images. That second leaf is huge! Or at least it looks huge. =) Love these in b&w.

I love the second shot and the black and white tones.

From what you've shown she was an incredible artist. She has a lovely daughter who is an incredible artist herself. Happy Friday.

Both b&w photos are beautiful. I like the drawing on the first photo. It really was drawn by a hand of artist.
Have a wonderful weekend!

What gorgeous pictures!!!!

Betsy said...

Gorgeous. I love that they are black and white.

Gayle said...

Your mom was a very talented artist. Did she sell her work, or was it only for personal enjoyment?

Your leaf photo is so beautiful. It is perfect paired with your mom's drawing.

Bittersweet, indeed.

And, oh, what a beautiful pairing.

Char said...

what a wonderful treasure indeed. I have one piece my mother painted and two pieces of furniture my father built. They are priceless to me.

Jennifer said...

What a wonderful combination.
B&W really brings out the texture of both.
How lucky that you have things of hers.

How gorgeous... I have a marble cutting/kneading board passed down generations that was our wedding present 5 years ago... I display it and love it to much to use it...

maz said...

What a gift you both have. Exploring art in different ways. Very evocative...:)

Toni said...

I totally missed last night that the drawing was by your mom. She was very talented and what a nice tribute to her.

these are amazing
thank you for sharing.

Donna said...

That second one is lovely....who knew there were so many shades of gray

Jane said...

Hmmm, Red or Gray, I think today is Gray and I love your mom's leaf and how you posted one of your own. Two artists,sharing vision with the same object. Very poetic. It is very sad to lose a mom. She was a beautiful woman and you are blessed to have these pieces of her. I have felt the same with my mom's fabric and unfinished pieces.

Donna said...

Just wanted to give you the heads up about making your pictures larger on your blog. I couldn't find your email address but if you want to email me I can run you through it.

Jewels said...

What a great memory from your mother. Love the leaf in B&W - I wonder why I never thought of that?

jeanamarie said...

you are such an inspiration - to keep going, taking care of my little ones, even when it seems difficult. what an incredible gift(s) from your mum.

MaryAnn Ashley said...

They are both great shots...

Beth said...

ohhhh.....black and white total gorgeousness....

Bridge said...

I love my pottery made by my great grandmother, who died when I was 5.
Her art is beautiful and that sense of beauty and good mothering has been passed on. I can tell.

Suvarna said...

beautiful b&w, your leaf almost looks like a painting,lovely tribute.

Country Girl said...
