Ties to the Past

Ties to the Past

This large painting was a commission for a Flower Mound family. Their mother had recently moved into a nursing facility and especially missed her begonias, which grew in front of her entryway under her porch. I really enjoyed creating a tie to the past for a beloved Mom.

My Mom's birthday is coming up in just a few days. I asked Mom what she wanted for her birthday and she said Ham. I'm not going to let her get off that easy... I think I'll bring all three pugs over when we visit her on Saturday. What a rare and wonderful gift that will be. : )
