my mother was an artist . she personified the word unconditional

I open a yellowed folder with a collection of her paintings in all stages

it is a joy for me to create with a part of one . a wall hanging with thoughts of her

soft watercolor birds with stitched cloth wings in her signature colors . soft and natural

twigs are added . mom declared nature held a special place in all types of art

no links this week just a special wish . if you are a mother . or not

feel unconditional love . on mothers day . on every day
