Jonathan's Flowers


"Jonathan's Flowers" (18"x24" acrylic on stretched canvas) is a painting near and dear to my heart. When my son (now 28) was 5 years old I took he and his sister to the mountains for a day of fun, just the three of us. It wasn't very long before my little blond haired son came walking up to me hands behind his back; all smiles. He said in that little voice that I will never forget..."Mommy I found you something that is just as beautiful as you are" and he produced these flowers already in their "paper vase". I scooped him up all full of that stuff we feel when we realize we've just experienced a moment that will live in our hearts forever and gave him the biggest thank you I could without squeezing him to pieces! I immediately put them on a rock and took a picture of them; frozen forever in my heart and something to look at every day. A few years ago I painted them, just as they were that day...the way he arranged them. Today I was missing my boy; whom I haven't gotten to see in nearly 3 years, so I wanted to share this very special mommy moment with my blogger family. I'm smiling, hope it gave you all a smile too!
PS. WELCOME to my newest followers. I am so happy you've decided to stop by now and then...if my math is up to speed that means we are only 8 away from the next give-away. Stay tuned for some new give-away choices...
