Default Painting of our place

Just have to show off the painting that my mother did of our place. I know I'm biased but I think she is very talented. You can see more of her work on her facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Marikesart/ If you look in her photos there are a couple more pictures of the old sugarhouse on our property.

I viewed her artwork on Facebook, very talented. I have an aunt who also does great art paintings. She is 89 and still mentally sharp. My wife read that painting or even coloring helps keep the mind sharp, so she has started. So for no results and I haven't even started.

Nick - that's a great looking painting. I've always been amazed at the people in this world that can do paintings and art like that. Very cool...

Flats - apparently adult coloring books are all the rage now. I had no idea until my wife told me about it one day. I immediately went to the closet for the magic markers but apparently this type of coloring involves precision and patience. It's supposedly good for stress relief and has some sort of therapeutic qualities.

Very cool painting she has some talent for sure. This painting reminds me of an old painting that hangs in our deer camp. The painting is of my grandpa's deer camp back when my mom wasn't even a teenager yet. A family friend painted it for them. I always wanted to get our present day deer camp painted on an old crosscut saw to hang up in the deer camp. We have the saw just haven't looked for a artist yet.
