Happy Mother's Day -- My art and family life

(This painting captures my feelings about
motherhood perfectly.  No matter how
much your children grow up, this early
beautiful time, and the powerful
feelings of new motherhood last for mothers
throughout their children's lives.
That's why we are so protective, so
crazy, so fiercely proud and so loving.
A heady mixture.  Enjoy kids!)

I hope you had a Happy Mother's Day.  I started the day
talking to my Mom, so sorry I couldn't be with her.  Then
as I drank my coffee and read my novel first Steven brought
me coffee, then Sam brought me enough roses to fill the
house!  Amazing.

Then tonight Christopher, Sam and Steven took me to dinner
at my favorite restaurant The Golden Thai.  The waiter Wilson
was very kind, and knew Wing, whose portrait I finished in
March.  He gave us special extra treats.  What an evening.
We laughed and joked and reminisced the evening away.
So it was a perfect day.

(This painting is of my daughter-in-law Megan.
It's a powerful painting in person. I am crazy
about Megan, she's added so much fun and 
laughter to our family.)

Thank you guys for a great evening,
and wonderful time being your mother.
Happy Mother's Day to all, and thank you to everyone who
gives me moral support, kindness and friendship -- women
and men, you are all like mothers to me.

Have a loving-the-mothers-and-fathers-and-
loving-people-in-your-world day
