My mother, the artist

My mom started painting about 10 years ago maybe a little more, maybe a little less. In her 70's she turned out to be quite the artist. When she sent me a painting, I wasn't sure what to expect but I loved it. Then she painted our house in Coral Gables and we loved that as well. This year, I commissioned a painting from her for our current house. It arrived this past week. It is beautiful.

My pictures do not do the paintings justice. I tried to take better pictures but to no avail. I love having an artist in the family. Now I have to have her paint our other two houses and our kitties!

  6. How neat to have an artist in the family. I can't even draw a good stick figure, so I am always in awe of people who can draw and paint like this.

    Those will be family heirlooms one day - pretty cool.
