My painting of ‘Pansies’ by Sherry Joiner a tribute to my mother Maria
My Brazilian Mom loved pansies and grew a garden full of those beautiful black velvet centered flowers that bore the expression of grumpy ol’ men in her adult and senior years. I just wanted to take the opportunity to say ‘hello’ and to send you a warm, happy, and special Mother’s Day wish, mom, while you reside in heaven. And to all the mother’s up there and who are living now on earth, taking care of your children, nurturing them with your love. Happy Mother’s Day! Feliz Mae Dia to my familia in Brazil. Mom passed in 1989 by suicide. I miss her sweet smile.
