    In January of 2018 I became my mother's full-time caregiver.

    In March she encouraged me to start painting again.

    I had forgotten that I could paint and loved to do it.

    While I was thinking about trying to paint again, she challenged me to paint a scene from one of her old pictures.

    Then she pulled out a 2 x 2 inch black and white photo of this log cabin in Iron Mountain Michigan that belonged to my father's cousin.

    I can never pass up a challenge!

    The result is this painting!

    Mom never got to see it in the frame, she died in April 2018, one week before the framer finished it.

    But she gave me the gift of painting to enjoy once again!

    Thanks Mom!
