New Mother's Day Paintings


"you're the best"

"baby mine"

"learning to crawl"

"it's okay"

"part of me"

"trouble"

"nestled"

"when I grow up"

"you first"

"seedlings"
Well, I wanted to get 10 paintings finished for Mother's Day and I did! Finished the last one late last night. Whew! This was a lot of work and I realized (again) that I work much better when I have a deadline. Of course I am much more stressed but I do get a lot more work done. I was going to post them on Monday but since I finished them all I thought... why not? Now I can relax and have a beer tonight while watching Grey's Anatomy.

Ian's family is coming this weekend too so I didn't want to be thinking about work the whole week. Feels so good to get this done. Yay!

Have a good weekend (saying that now because I doubt if I'll post anything tomorrow).

All of these paintings are available at my shop. Prints are also available here.
