My mother is a product of the 60's, she has a great imagination as you can see in the first two pictures. I often tease her and say that she is from another planet like the one in the first pic. The first picture was one of her first paintings titled "Garlic Worm" inspired by our dog's squeak toy that was shaped like a alien worm. The hailbob comet inspired the painting as well. We had an incredible view for weeks of that comet. Seems like a lifetime ago! If you look at the left of the painting you can see garlic worm peeking out of the cave. Thanks for looking!

    Thanks everyone for the loves! I wish I could say that I can paint, but I can't. My mother and grandmother started painting later in life so who knows maybe in another 10 years or so.

    Garlic Worm is definitely my favorite!! And for the record Vintagemad can paint, if my memory serves me.. you painted the walls behind the paintings.

    These are amazing. I, too, love the Garlic Worm the best. Your mom was very talented

    Thanks again everyone, I should have mentioned that garlic worm is about 40x60 inches big and that's just guessing. My mom has a thing for polar bears as well she did a huge life size mural in her old apartment, wish I had pic's.
