MckLinky Blog Hop #11 - SHOW OFF YOUR ART!

This week's Blog Hop theme is "SHOW OFF YOUR ART".

I am not an artist, but my dear Mom was!! She had an a.mazing talent for painting ~ along with many other talents. I only wish I would have inhereted that from her! My daughter and son were fortunate to get her creative gene. I on the other hand am still honing my stick figure skills!

Unfortunately, we lost her to cancer but thank God she left several paintings for us to enjoy forever!!

This first painting she did for me for as a birthday gift.
We shared a love of whales and this is the painting that one of my ankle tattoos matches!

This painting I also am blessed to have hanging in my home -
It shows a depth of the ocean that is simple so tranquil!!

This painting was actually sold (her first) to anindividual on the east coast ~
Sure wish I could get my hands on it!

Painting given to my husband (The great White Hunter)

Inpired by the movie "Free Willy"

Painted on an old saw
I hope you enjoyed viewing my Mom's art as much as I do!

Wow! She was very talented! I wish I was that artistic.

In SF there were a lot of people out painting the beautiful scenery. I also got a photograph that I'm going to get framed today : )

Oh goodness! They are beautiful and how special that you have some from her.

Miss my mom all the time! How sweet it would be to just pick up the phone and hear her voice :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
