76/365: My Mother's Painting


My Mother's Painting, originally uploaded by PartsnPieces.

My mother began teaching herself to paint in 1977. She painted this scene in 1990. To offer some scale, this painting is about 4' square. This was hers; now it's mine. (Mollie Rodgers Queen: August 8, 1939 -- March 6, 2007)

Wow, that's pretty impressive. Are you going to hang it up or what?

Wow. How wonderful to have something like that to remember her by.

I'm stunned by the actual size of it. Such detail. Very nice way to remember your mom.

It's so pretty. It looks remarkably like a cabin we stayed in next to a stream in Alaska last year.
