My mother left a legacy of paintings for her children and grandchildren. She sold some on consignment at a local gift store. She would do the artwork and my father would make the frames. I have about fifteen of her paintings scattered throughout my home. Here are a few of my favorites. The grouping are minis of the four seasons.

    Beautiful!! I particularly like the country house in the 3rd picture. It reminds me of typical mountain homes here in Spain.

    Your mother was a gifted artist.

    I really like all of the rural scenes. I think the barns with the falls colors (3rd photo) is my favorite.
