Mom's wheelbarrow

I'm back from the field and decided to post a painting I did earlier. I'm still covered in dirt and am a bit stinky but wanted to share this before I get cleaned up. This painting is of my Mom's old wheelbarrow that's sitting out in the back yard. It's a rusty old thing but I love it because it reminds me of my mom and her gardening fiascoes.

Hi Joan,

Allison directed me to your wonderful site.

I encourage/beg you to compile your drawings and comments/captions and publish in a book. I love the drawings as well as the write ups.

I chose "Mom's wheelbarrow" to comment back to you because next month makes 1 year since my mom passed away. I have been thinking of her with a heavy heart.

You have a wonderful talent. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Jennifer! I'm sorry to hear about your mom. It really is nice to have rememberances around to remind us all of the good times we shared with those we love. Stop by anytime ... I usually post something new everyday. Aloha!!
