Flake-out Friday: A Tribute to My Momma

My Mom is a pretty special lady. And I’m not saying that just because she’s my mom, ‘kay?

One of her talents is painting and I just HAVE to share the more recent art she made. Just. For. Me.

Donna’s Fancy Dancer

(Isn’t is beautiful? It sits above the mantle, a place of honor.)

Here’s another fav project from a few years ago.

What special talents do your family members have?

    Nice! My momma can cook! Yeah, she makes the best _arroz con gandules_ (rice with pigeon peas).

  3. Arlee Bird says:

    Those paintings are beautiful. I love the color gradients of the first one. She can’t do it anymore, but my mother was a dancer. My whole family juggles.

    Those are beautiful pieces, Laura! My mom’s side of the family is filled with creative brains too. Most of them are musically gifted. Lots of song in this bunch. I love that!

  6. Hey, you’re mom is talented! Great paintings!

  7. Carol Riggs says:

    Very lovely, both of those! Your mother is talented. My mom is an awesome quilter, and designs her own quilts. My daughters sing and one also writes songs. My grandma and aunt used to quilt and do crafty things too. We have a creative bent in our family–like yours!

    Your mother is a wonderful artist!

    Those are gorgeous! I love the horse. I tried to draw a horse last night and….it’s never seeing the light of day.

    My sister’s musically talented. When we were in high school, she played almost everything in the band. She can also write and paint, though she paints more than she writes.

    My mom crochets like a fiend. Gorgeous afghans.

    My dad built half our house. He’s amazing as a carpenter. I keep telling him he should just do that for a living.

  13. Lydia K says:

    That horse is amazing but I LOVE the house. It’s got so much charm and warmth and personality!

  14. Your mother’s two pictures are very versatile. Very sweet for you to publicly recognize her.

    My mom painted a picture for me when I was a baby. It was in my room throughout my childhood.

    oohh! I have a very talented cousin who can write like a dream 😉
