Mother's Day Paintings

From the time I was a child, whenever I wanted to "give love" to someone, my first instinct was to make them a card, post
er, painting or some such arty thing. I made five separate paintings yesterday as gifts to all the mothers who were going to be at a belated Mother's Day family gathering, one of which is shown here. The day before that I made eight little paintings for all my best girlfriends. Remember this; artists need to create. It spouts out of them like a fountain. They might need the money from selling art but truly, money is never the reason for making art. Making art is the core reason for making art.
