46. Still Life (Week 48)


“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”  ~ CS Lewis ~

A few years ago my mother was asked by a friend at her church if she would like to take art lessons.  She said “I can’t draw a line” and her friend said yes you can.  So three ladies paid another friend $15 each week to teach them how to draw.  They would take turns at each other’s house.  Each hostess was to provide wine and crackers.  Mom was 78 when she started and she enjoyed this for four years until her hands and eyes began to fail her.


This Christmas scene was her first piece.


She made Easter cards from these flowers.


The lessons varied from flowers, to birds, a simple scene and a young boy.  Here is some more of her work.
