Mom, the Unlikely Artist

DSC08249We are on the eve of the exhibition. Tomorrow the art arrives at the galleries to be hung and then Thursday it begins!

And to think it all began with Mom—the most unlikely of artists. For all her protests that she didn’t and wouldn’t paint, she surprised us all. Her wonderful artwork opened my eyes to the fact that while her memory was fading, her spirit remained strong, inventive and engaging.

She would be thrilled to see what her paintings have inspired—mystified but thrilled nonetheless.

These are her first three paintings. Who knew?
