My mom liked the idea and had a blast going through the paintings with me. I think we were both pleasantly surprised at how many she remembered doing. We even managed to put some unfinished ones aside, so we were able to do some spring cleaning, too. I'll be posting some of her colorful work over the rest of the month, but here is one that I really liked that is now hanging in her bedroom. It's very Florida, quirky, even silly. Like a lot of her work she mixes painting and collage. I really like it.
The experience had an impact on her, because the next day she was eager to look through a portfolio we have of some of her drawings. I think this may be a good thing to do every once in a while. Everyone has accomplishments that they want to revisit and share.
