  9. Great post! She definitely developed her own style. It’s funny that you said she was fussing about colors…I think her use of color is what is so wonderful about her work. How great that she developed this passion and left this work and these memories for you. 🙂

    • Thank you! I was just so happy that Mum found something that she enjoyed doing instead of her needlework. Truthfully I never expected it to develop into such an interest for her but as I told her, “You never know unless you try.”

  10. Bravo for your article, patience and enhtusiasm. It is very difficult to convince a loved one that they can do something especially when they tend to constantly raise objections to your positive feedbacks and encouragements. I am currently facing this situation but given time, patience and encouragement this person I am encouraging is studying water color techniques and will begin her first painting soon!

    • Thank you, Gerry! Good luck with your efforts. It’s such a worthwhile endeavor to encourage someone to spread their wings and try something new, especially something creative.

  11. What a lovely, lovely story – so poignant and full of love. And, yes, your mum was incredibly talented! I lover her work. And thank you for visiting my blog, too! Cackie
