I have always loved this picture- I want to use it for a painting because I think the harmony of the composition is excellent.
I totally thiefed these pix from my Mom's house. She always asks - do you have those pictures where I have long dirty hair ha ha. What a fat baby I was! She swore I was the cutest and that the nurses didn't want to let me leave the hospital. Do all mothers say that? I think so.
When she had me she was so young and a highschool dropout. The picture here is us at her University of Tennesse College Graduation where she graduated with a 4.0. By the time I was 9 she was an attorney. College and Law School. I always saw what we didn't have but the older I get the more I realize how amazing that was and how much she gave me through her example.
Christmas and I got a baby doll!!! I guess I always was attracted to the beauty of motherhood!
Mom cut her long hippy hair.
Isn't she beautiful!

I could say a lot about this painting but I think I will save it for tomorrow's post.
Happy Mother's Day and Thank You Mothers everywhere.
