A Quick Share

My mom is awesome. She always had a bit of artistic flair, but while my sister and I were kids she worked full time so that we could have "fun" money and she and my dad could pay for us to go to college. Once my sister and I were both graduated and on our own, she quit working and started painting. Here's one of her more recent water colors, I'm amazed at how realistic the bricks look: And here's my mom, isn't she beautiful.

Wow! That looks fantastic. How I wish I had that kind of skill with watercolors.
