Mom's Coffee Creamer

Funny the treasures that remind us of home.  The silver jar with the spoon on the side was on the counter at my parents home for as long as I can remember.  It is a simple reminder of Mom.  She loved anything silver and used this daily to add powdered creamer to her coffee.  Nice memento.  The painting will hang in the dining room at Crossings Winery during the month of May.

Fond Memories

Another piece that will be in the Crossings Winery Show in May!  This painting was done from a photo I took years ago when I drove my parents through North Dakota farmlands to Minnesota to visit relatives.  We stopped along the way for periodic rests and I took a lot of reference photos that got stored in a box.  Looking for inspiration for show paintings, I was happy to discover the long lost pics I had taken on that trip.  With both parents gone now, it is a gift to find fond memories of good times with Mom and Dad.
