Hello my sweet friends! It is such a special day today! I am featuring my Mom! She is the most talented, creative and the most beautiful artist that I know. And today I just wanted to share with you the amazing paintings that she does.

My Mom has always painted. Summers were always filled with lots of great art classes when I was a kid. I can remember her painting throughout my childhood through adulthood.

Now that my Mom has retired, she is painting full time and creates some beautiful landscape pictures of the local light house in Holland, Michigan. She is gearing up for her first art show! I plan on being there next summer when she has it!

Here are a few of her amazing paintings!

This is her latest oil painting of “Big Red” lighthouse during the snowy months. I love the reflection and all the ice details. She just finished this a couple days ago!

    Joanna, Your mom’s work is beautiful. I knew you were from Michigan but I didn’t know where until you mentioned Holland. I’m from Kalamazoo. And yes, we do have wonderful summers AND winters here in Michigan and your mom has shown that exquisitely! How did you end up in Australia…if you’ve ever told the story on your blog, I’ve missed it.

    WOW I am totally honored by you Jo for featuring me and for all the wonderful compliments from your readers! My heart is filled with gratitude for all their kind words. I especially like what Paulette said, “On loan from God” which I believe wholeheartedly. Along with God my talents also have been handed down from my Mother “Nana” who makes beautiful afghans…..Thank You!
