Art I Heart: A Water-coloured drawing

In response to the prompt here, I’m posting a picture that is very special to me: a pencil drawing, coloured in with water-colours, of flowering twigs and plants. It was done by my mother. I new nothing about just how good at this sort of thing she had been, until after her death, when, clearing out some items at my parents’ home, I came across a large folder. This picture was in an inner paper folder, beautifully labelled ‘rough work.’ It would have been done at the time my mother was training as a teacher. That makes it, let’s just say, rather old. The accuracy and detail fills me with awe – and shows me how little I really knew my own mother. But I do know that she was modest, and very loving.

  1. It’s absolutely beautiful – what a gift, both the gift she had and that she’s ‘given’ you this wonderful legacy. Thanks for joining the linky.

    Absolutely stunning. If this was her “rough work” then her “proper work” must be amazing. What a lovely piece to discover.
