needless to say – the gorgeous face here is my darling mother at 18 –
this piece is one of those experimental canvases – like picking up a pencil and doodling – unsure of the journey – but comforting all the same 🌹
ah, my gorgeous mother Millie with that movie star smile, dang wish I had those teeth
she told me this pic was taken in Atlantic City, she was 19 and is pictured (left) with 2 friends from Hester Street, Manhattan and her cousin
photo of my beautiful mom in younger glorious days – my smiling bright star
well, well-don’t usually post pics of myself but alas, the hair was done for a dear friend’s son’s wedding, by a talented woman who happens to also be one of my mom’s excellent caregivers – so for a few hours I pretended I had glass slippers not a pumpkin coach 😘
while having lunch at the Olive Garden with my daughter and son, prior to dropping them off on campus, we had the good fortune of having an amazing waitress named Joanne-who was a beautiful inspiration and reminder of why life is worth its challenges
not sure where this one manifested from, though I wanted to end this one on a positive note-we do need hope
the gal in the background is a sculpture I made in eleventh grade-I stubbornly didn’t listen to my art teacher and this lady fell apart-too bad
the original layout was really buggin’ me, this is a redo and edit, apologies – couldn’t leave Millie that way –
A glorious Mother’s Day to all you fabulous mothers!
Happy Mother’s Day to all you wondrous moms!
