Flowers For My Mother

45.5 x 45.5 x 5.5cmacrylic and mixed media on canvas
Flowers for My Mother came along quite by surprise really. This painting went through many iterations, but to arrive at this bunch of blooms gave me the name for the work.  Roses were a favourite of my mother, and her devotion to her faith flowed in to represent the required accompaniments for her bold blue vase of joy. Mum passed in Jan 2016, she was a keen gardener, and painting these flowers for her was a beautiful tribute in memory of her… and all Mothers really.
