Coming and going from Monterey Plein air Convention, I stayed with my 83 year old mom, Donna.  I missed her a lot as a child but did have a very special year with her when I was a Senior at Antioch High School.  She was a fairy queen in my head for many years and I adore her.  At this point, life is slow and sometimes tough but she has a very special light that shines from her heart and our moments together really count.

 

She grows the most beutiful fragrent roses you could imagine and I set up on her back deck to paint and enjoy her company.  It's great to have a mom who says, "Oh honey, that's beautiful".
