Happy Mother’s Day! Thank You to all the Mothers who devote their hearts, souls, lives ensuring their children are loved and know it! When your children are little, they may not tell you but your love means more than anything to them. Thank you.
Mother’s Day is a celebration, a remembrance, a memorial.
Mother’s Day watercolour bouquet is a symbol of appreciation, a heartfelt thank you for all the cherished memories Mothers have given to us. Whether they were mothers, grandmothers, aunties, or ladies who stepped up to be Mothers – their many untold sacrifices for our sakes are acknowledged and appreciated!
For this Bouquet in watercolours, these are the colours my own mother liked when I was growing up, especially the salmon and apricot. She always had nice flowers in spring and summer in the deep indigo vase, which I’ve featured in the painting.
The painting has a sense of fun & creativity that was part of our everyday lives at our house.
Mom helped us make forts in the living room on rainy days out of boxes and sheets; she hand sewed wild and crazy Halloween costumes for us to wear over to the neighbors, laughed when we did quite silly things, she invented the most generous tooth fairy who brought tiny glass animals for each tooth, every holiday she created a sense of adventure & anticipation that was marvellous!
We were allowed to get quite messy and to make a mess. It never phased her. She just laughed. We cluttered up the living room playing with our forts and all our toys. But, yes, then we were accountable to then clean up the mess.
Thank You Mom for teaching me to be accountable for my own actions.
Mom was always able to imagine and create the most inspiring and fun things for us to do and see. Including a plethora of daily chores! very very inventive on that one!!
Thank You Mom very much, for teaching me good work ethics. I’d be lost without them.
Happy Mother’s Day!
