this is a tiny little painting i did the other night of my mom feeding birds at the beach (or really, the love she gives us, her family, so easily and readily). now don't worry, i'm in no way under the impression that i'm some fabulous painter or great artist - this was only for fun (and after being inspired to get out paints and sit in the middle of the kitchen floor immediately after watching this piece - all rendered truth- on folk artists on scetv) - however, i do think it's relaxing and fun to play with mediums that are not necessarily my strong suit and whether the outcome is good or bad, it can teach skills that i can translate into my other stronger areas of creation.

and also, perhaps most importantly, to remind myself that perfection should not always be the goal.
