Mother's Day Sunday 2014

There is such a nice thing about Mother's Day - We can ALL celebrate this day.

Maybe you're a Mother or Grandma, we all had a Mother or we wouldn't be here.   

Some Mom's are in Heaven still watching as we know they do!  Some Mom's are close by, some are far away, some chose their kids with adoption and then there are the angels who become Foster Moms.  I believe we can all be sure no matter what, we have all been loved as only a Mother can love.

The art I chose for today's post is the sort that maybe only a Mother (or Grandmother) can Love.  It is the ART that comes from deep inside a heart of childish innocence.

Perhaps you have received art like this or you have created art like this.  I know that Picasso or Michael Angelo could not impress me more than this piece of perfect Art.

To all the Mom's, Grandmothers, sons & daughters, please have the most lovely day reflecting on the feelings of childhood; the ability to imagine, make up stuff, create with freedom & give little thought to grownup rules!

P.S.  G does have a great eye for composition!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
