This week threw me a few curve balls, which disrupted my daily painting. C'est la vie. (I am French after all, well my Grandmother grew up in Commercy, France so I'm stretching a tiny bit.)
And the Power Ball lottery ticket was picked in SC! Too bad it wasn't mine.
Oh how I digress!
Now back to the main thing, my painting! This one, as most of these are in this challenge, is meaningful to a very special friend of mine. "Cat's" mom has been in heaven for years but Cat is her only daughter and they had from what she has shared had a beautifully southern mother daughter bond. Cat is one of the most amazing women I have ever had the priviledge to call a friend and a mentor of sorts. She has taught me things I knew already but somehow by watching her, I decided to put some of those things into action. Can you tell how much I love her?
This painting is to honor a time worn, hand rubbed knife that her mother used daily. We created a "still life" with a few things from her kitchen, "my" favorite pepper grinder (I cannot tell you how much I adore this relic), one tattered, stained Junior League cookbook with plastic binding, greenery, etc. I could probably keep tweaking this one a bit but then again I think I should just let her be.Cat hasn't seen it yet, keep your fingers crossed that she loves it - I'm talking tears here!
