My mother's artwork

Once Upon A Time
I am so amazed at the show my mother has put together. Her show opens tomorrow and runs through February 1 at the DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun in Tucson. I wish I could have been there for the reception tomorrow, but she asked me to be there for the last day.

If you'd like to see what the show will look like, a friend of hers made a cheesy little photo show.

I really am rather proud of her finally finding her niche.

FInally? How long has she been painting? Her work is marvellous. I don't know which ones I like better, her ndn paintings or her organics.

Tell her kudos from your FL.

When I was a kid, my mom drew wonderful portraits in charcoal. As I grew up, she drew and wrote poetry less and less. Her art became craft projects and then nearly stopped all together. I have no idea why. About 7 years ago, she took an art class on a particular pencil technique that allowed her to make pictures that looked amazingly like photographs. Those pieces, I gather, are things she's done in the last five years. Ever since she moved full time to Arizona.

I will pass on the kudos. Thank you!

I suspect it was life. The same has happened to me, and I'm trying a correspondence course right now to jump start the old muses, who are still there, but sluggish from lack of activity. I'm really glad to know she woke hers up.

AZ and NM are probably my favorite places, that's where my Dad's family is from.

Very nice! I love the whimsy of the golf pair and the "Self Portrait". They made me smile. :) Like that. :)

She's very good with those pencils.

Best of luck to her in her showing!

The golf pair is a full set of 18 holes of golf. Each one is really amusing. I don't know that she has the entire series done, but I know she has, at least, the front nine.

The Self Portrait is one she won an AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE from the Colored Pencil Society of America in their 10th Annual International Exhibition.

Not bad Native American artwork for the Polish Princess.
