Passions of an Odd Chick

A Girl at Any Age

I've been practicing little folk art faces because I took an on-line class from Sharon Tomlinson whose art really speaks to me.

This represents the GIRL at every age. I turned 50, my daughter turned 30 and my mom turned 70 last year. I needed a little painting that would represent that special year for me.

This is a heirloom photo we had made by a local photographer to also commemorate the occasion.

We are a close trio - we talk with one another almost every other day and share our lives and our hearts and our hurts. With me and Mom, its always been about the little one (the beauty in the middle). Whatever we can do to make her journey better in this world you can bet one of us, if not both of us, will step up to the plate.

She is the new and improved model and she passes on the female goddess of our tribe, and the best of both of us.

I'm taking her to An Artful Journey in 3 days to San Jose, California as a special gift and time to share together. We should have lots of fun stuff to show you from that adventure with Kelly Rae Roberts and Mati Rose.

Did I mention that I am feeling like one very blessed girl?

Yes, blessings abound!
What a great post to celebrate three generations of womanhood and love and tradition.
Your painting is a beautiful representation of those qualities.
May all of you be blessed and remain close.

Hi...I have seen you post over at Sharon's workshop. I'm taking the class but I haven't done a face yet. I love this piece you did showing the different ages. You are blessed to have your mom and your daughter in your life and speaking to you...there's so many mother-dauthers who do not talk.
