Our challenge on the Big Art Adventure this week is to make a set of inchies.Before I go...... I want to thank my Suziblu workshop friend Shonna for giving me this award. Her paintings are just gorgeous and she is doing some wonderful things for Christmas. I recommend you take a look.
I decided to do a 'celebration of women' and thought I'd use yet another chunky block from the pile at the side of my table (thank you DH).
My starting point was my mum....I've been thinking a lot about her recently and the amazing way she copes with my dad. Dementia is bad enough, but dad has physical problems as well and can't really do anything for himself. Mum is almost 80 and you would not believe the things she does for him. Not only that but she seems to have more and more patience with him as his condition deteriorates. So....one of the pictures on the block is of my mum. She likes seeing my artwork every time I go round (I always take my latest efforts in a little bag to show her) so I hope she likes this.
