One of the things I love about painting is when something I paint makes another person so happy that all they want to do is give me a hug. That’s what I got today. One of those moments you can’t create. It’s something that makes my entire day brighter.

I was commissioned to paint a mother’s hands. She is in her 90’s and she is teaching her daughter and granddaughters how to make this traditional German pastry. This painting is going to be mom’s Christmas present. I felt so truly blessed to be asked to paint this. The first picture is the photo I was given and the second is the painting I did.

I truly believe that whatever your talents are in life you are meant to share them.
