My Inspiration

For as long as I can remember [and before], my mom has painted and look what she sent me the other day! Two paintings that she recently finished - just for me! (And my family.) ;-)

Mt. Shuksan, WA

Mt. Rainier, WA

My mom has never tried to sell her paintings, she just paints because she loves it. And within the last 10 years or so, she hasn't painted much - I guess life was getting in the way. But since she's heard about me getting into it, she's started back up again, which thrills me! I can tell by these two latest creations that she's getting back into her groove and the love that she once had for painting is returning, which is really inspiring me!

Who is your inspiration?

Peace, Love and Chocolate
