Well, erin gave me a lovely gift yesterday for Mother’s Day. She set up a blog for me on Word Press. A blog was something that I’d said I would like to do some day, but like many women, I never seem to make the time for the intentions that I have stated for myself.
I enjoyed all the pictures of mothers that found their way to people’s Facebook pages and blogs and thought that a picture of my Mom would be an appropriate first posting.
This piece is a faux encaustic that I made at the Red Thread Retreat with Claudine Hellmuth in October. The theme of the retreat was Me, Myself and I, our past, present and future. There were three wonderful teachers, Claudine, Nina Bagley and Lesley Riley who each had a day as the featured teacher. Nineteen women, no cooking, but plenty of eating, wine and 24 hour studio access in a beautiful mountain retreat center. My Mother would have loved it!
