My mother was an artist.. a true artist..Studied art at a famous art school.. was gifted in a very special way..
I have some of her beautiful art work in my home..And feel so lucky. Every day..I am blessed to see them as I walk around our home...
One of my daughter's inherited her beautiful black hair.. A daily reminder of my mother.Not that I need any visual reminders..She is part of me in an indescribable way. In an indelible way..
Unfortunately..I was not gifted in that way..But everything artistic attracts me. Anything creative.. I am drawn to:) That's why I usually have my trusted Winsor &Newton/ Cotman WaterColours Sketcher's Pocket Box close by.. whenever I travel..and whenever I am home... I think this is my third:) I am no better than at my first..But love it as much as my first Crayola or Prismacolor box..
One of my daughters recently shared a photo of one of her darling boys..Lulu.. smiling in front of a huge watercolor he had just made. I only saw it from afar.. but to me..
It was a Monet.
