Art From the Heart ❤️

My mom’s birthday was this week on Friday, March 3rd.  She would have been 88 years old if she was still living… she died much too soon at age 70.

My mom and I didn’t always get along.  Yet, the last 6 months before she died, she and I connected.  It has been one of the greatest gifts I received and cherish when I think of her.

I created this piece in my art journal this week as an assignment for Carla Sonheim’s class, writing a poem (I chose this quote) with a paint brush and watercolor.  I added the flowers with the crayon resist technique:

Afterwards, I realized that it was art from my heart – which is so powerful!  My mom and I both LOVED flowers!

How do you and your mom connect from the heart?!

Cheers!  🙂
