Personal Project | Irish Eyes are Smiling...A Self Portrait!

Day 2:

I am making this a tribute to my Mother on her Birthday! If I could capture the scent of Shalimar that would describe her perfectly. If I was able to create a portrait of her to take today it would include so many things. I would need Pink for sure...and not just any pink,  a very soft pale champaign pink. I think flowers and Crystal, Paints & Canvas's, Fabrics, Baking & Books.  She is a very Creative, Loving, Giving woman.  I have learned so many wonderful things from her over the years. How to Sew, to Paint, Sketch, Design, Bake, Cook, and Generosity.  To be Adventurous (except her little food phobias) and to be Spontaneous! To have a deep love of Family & of the Lord.  I have learned to Create and to see as an Artist because of her.  I may not capture all of this in this image .....Instead I will do my best to show you my vision of her with what I have at my fingertips.

Happy Birthday Mom!

  1. This is soooo amazing, you are a thoughtful daughter to do such an insightful portrait of your mom. It really captures her. It should be framed. Love love love it!
