Yesterday, everyone celebrated their amazing mama's for Mother's Day. While I wasn't able to be with mine in person, I made sure to call her multiple times throughout the day to chat and tell her how much I love and appreciate her. I also sent both her and my grandma paintings that I made just for them!
I have been promising my mom a painting for her new office for months now, and knew that I wanted to paint my favorite picture of the two of us from our trip to Italy last summer. From the fun loving kiss she is planting on my cheek to the beautiful rolling greens of Chianti in the background, the picture was essentially asking me to paint it!
For my grandma, I knew that I also wanted to paint something from Italy. Our family owns and runs a hotel in Positano, Italy called the Buca di Bacco where my mom and I stayed during our vacation. One of our favorite parts of the day was enjoying breakfast on the patio overlooking the gorgeous view of Positano. The Buca's website has a picture that perfectly captures that moment, and made the perfect picture to paint!
I will be turning this painting into an art print (per my mom's request!) and it will be available in my shop soon!
I hope that all of you had the chance to spend quality time with your moms and other important ladies in your life yesterday! Make sure to tell them every day just how much you love and appreciate them!
