Mother's Days have come and gone, and for some reason, this year, I am filled with sadness over the absence of mine. My mom died almost 24 years ago at the age of 73 - far too young and vibrant! She didn't live to see me experience success as an artist. In fact, she didn't live to even KNOW I would become a fiber artist! I think she would have been very proud!
But, alas, I am saddened by the fact that I didn't support her in her artwork in the way that I would today. I was young; I was not part of any art community or culture at the time and never thought I would be; I feel I failed her as a daughter in that respect. But I honor her with the artwork I have displayed all throughout my home. And while I pass by it every day and don't even see it, today I'm going to give you all a tour to see some of her work....in oil, acrylic, watercolor, Chinese Brush, cement, pen & ink, and more! Enjoy!
