I have an amazing mom! I admire her selfless love that she shares to all who know her. I was blessed to have my mom stay home with us while we were young. She was always there for her kids and she was our safe place to land when the world outside was rough. My mom is also an amazing artist. Growing up I wanted to draw and create just like her. She could draw portraits that looked like photographs. I was so impatient when I was young and wanted to do what she did right at that moment. I learned that it takes time and dedication, and she helped me along the way. It is nice to have her critique my work when I have a hard time "seeing" something that may not be quite right.
I have a very talented family who are all artists. I look forward to sharing their art with you in future posts. As artists we live to create and share. As a family we appreciate and support one another. So I call this painting Mom's Gift. Not only because this is my gift to her, but because I believe she is my gift from God, as was I to her. So mom, I love you with all of my heart. Thank you for all you have done for me : )
Thank you all of my friends for letting me share this with you!
Hugs and Blessings! ~ Nichole
