Water, Dogwood Art, and Family Connections

Whew! What a stressful ride was that — the month of May.
Water. Water. Everywhere.

Looking through images of past paintings, I came across these two pieces painted many years apart yet coincidentally so similar. Dogwood in Crockery and Dogwood in Red Pot. Both paintings have a strong family connection to my grandmother, my mother, and my aunt.

June brings thoughts of my mother and her love of all flowers. Her birthday would have been this month, and I am reminded of how quickly time passes. Several years before her death, she 'confessed' to me that as a teenager she had fibbed on her drivers license application to make herself one year older because she had been in such a hurry to drive. Lol ... As children we have such a small window into a parent's life. We tend to forget that parents had a life before we were born. 

The sun shines again this morning. Have a good one!

As a child, I was reprimanded for daydreaming. Today my daydreams morph into paintings.
