Missing my Mom šŸ’”

This morning In the wee hours as I tried to get back to sleep, my Mom was top of mind. She always encouraged me to pursue being an artist and was my most enthusiastic fan; constantly asking when I would get back to painting. On her walls hung a retrospective of my artwork from my early days at the H.S. of Art and Design to more recent works. It didn't matter that some of the pieces were cringe worthy to me; she loved them all and made sure all her visitors knew that her daughter created them. I wish she would have lived to see me realize my dream of being an artist but her confidence in me lives on.
 
Happy Mother's Day!
