My mothers painting

I have no cards just yet so I thought I would show you one of my mothers paintings. She started painting after all us kids had left home. So she was well into her 50's. They started their family later in life.
I hope you can see it well but if not click on the picture.
I did not inherit her sense of depth, color or shadowing but I did inherit her love of art.
Hope you enjoy this!
Have a Blessed day.

Amazing painting. I love painting but dont have the self belief to try oil painting. Do you paint too?

My goodness - how lucky I am to have one of your mother's wonderful paintings. So many lovely memories seeing this one brings back! Great idea to share her paintings with all of us.
