Yesterday we celebrated the life of my Mother, who passed away July 20, 2011, at the First Parish Unitarian Church in Norwell.
It was a perfect tribute to her- she was a warm, talented, funny, beautiful person.
I miss her but know in my heart that she is at peace .
This painting was done by artist Catherine ( Stevie") Goodnow of Scituate. It was painted for the play "Laura" in which my mother had the lead role. It was always in our house growing up, and is my favorite image of my mom. Now I get to have it in my home.
This arrangement for the alter yesterday is from all of her children's yards and gardens, in her cut crystal pitcher. I haven't felt much like painting lately, but I might attempt it today in watercolors.
