Do you ever go home and get completely surprised by what your mother has now created? Well, it should be no surprise to me... I grew up with most of my clothes being handmade; my mom has made pottery, comfortors, roman shades, oriental valance boxes, lamps out of vases and candlesticks, and just about everything you could think of.
But I've never seen her paint a picture. Here is a picture of her painting - a dog head triton sea shell (yes, we're all obsessed with shells):
The painting was acrylic on canvas and in a really neat and detailed wood frame. Maybe I was just so surprised by the creation because often times I think of us as craftspeople rather than artists?
Anyway, I like it so much that I've talked her into letting me share it with other people... I'm still working on whether to do prints with a matte finish or a glossy finish - but look for this guy soon on a set of notecards :)
