So after this title I am guessing you were wondering what the heck I had planned for this post. Well, those of you who have followed my artistic meanderings over the last few months may recall me posting one of a five piece series called “My Mother’s Closet”. Then I posted a detail of another in the series but didn’t show it to you in its entirety. Well, here they are…all five in the “My Mother’s Closet” Series. They are all acrylic on canvas and are 24 x 36. The photographs were taken by me so my apologies to all of my wonderfully talented photographer blogger friends…I know, some of these photos are a little wonky (and one has my overhead fan pull in it!!) so please forgive me for this!
These five pieces are a tribute to my 82-year-old mother and all of the fabulous colours she surrounded me with as a child and continues to do so to this day. They are my rendition of her closet from her home in Florida. The pieces have been in the works for a little over a year and finally, they are complete! Thank you to my wonderful mother for her inspiration throughout my life. I hope she realizes how much Colour and Joy she adds to my life and the life of my children every single day! Thank you as well to Jean Rooney and Donna Mulholland, who continue to guide me in my journey back to art. Thank you to my husband and children for encouraging me in my daily art practice these past hundred days and more (as well as my daily blogging practice). The support of my friends and colleagues is also greatly appreciated. Finally, thank you to my fellow journey women and men who have enriched my artistic education in more ways than I could ever describe. Enjoy, cherish the ones you love and what they bring to your life and, as always, keep making art!!!
