A Simple Act of Kindness

This page was done on an evening when I had a desire to sketch and paint, but nothing really in mind for a subject. Again I looked around and I found the simple tin of candy that my mother gave to me this spring. Thanks Mom!!

I love how you capture the simple things in life! After all, aren't these the things that really matter.

Thanks for your feedback. I am really enjoying and appreciating that sketching and painting is slowing me down a bit -- to enjoy the simpler things in life!

What a lovely tribute to your mom!

I always enjoy seeing art and text combined and you have a very elegant way of combining them in your work. So well done!

Sounds like you and your mom are pretty close. You obviously select very meaningful objects to draw.
