"Tribute to My Mom"
Watercolor     8x10
Inspiration and Design:
My mother was born and raised on an American-German family farm in Rich Fountain, Missouri.  Being born in October 1930, her viewpoint is shaped by the Great Depression.  She lives frugally and self-sufficiently.  I set up a still-life around green beans from my mom and dad's garden.  The supporting objects were ones that I associate with my mother preparing beans, paring knife and tea towels.  This painting is a tribute to my mom and all that she has taught me.  One should take care of yourself by eating good food.
