For the Love of Mom...

"Wisdom Trees on the Shore of Goodbye"
2.5" x 6.25"
Watercolor on Yupo

"November Catharsis"
8" x 10"
Watercolor on Yupo

After nearly a week of being by my Mom's side as she quickly slipped away from us up to eternal life on Thursday, November 17, I painted these two small works last night on November 18. These are my first watercolors on yupo. I think they capture the emotion of the week. Painting them was certainly therapeutic for me. I especially love the small piece on top. Looking forward to doing more with watercolor in the coming weeks. Thanks to everyone who has prayed and offered support to me and my family during this difficult time.

Those are a beautiful tribute to your mom, Lee. I hope you will do more with watercolor. I may be a bit biased though as it is my medium of choice. Peace xx
