PAINT PARTY FRIDAY WEEK 47

Hi Everyone!
It is more difficult than I thought it would be to find my "normal" since my mom passed away.  I am trying to keep very busy with my brother taking care of my mom's affairs and my own. Thank goodness my brother and I are doing this together. Anyway I am just trying to stay light and as stress free as possible. I have managed to sell another painting and started a new one the other day. This is not quite finished but you get the idea.  Miss all of you fine people and your art. I look forward to seeing what you have been up to. 
Thank you to Eva and Kristen for hosting Paint Party Friday

  4. Very pretty piece that has so much movement. So sorry your going though a time of loss. I'm an only child and can't imagine what life will be like when I can't pick up the phone and call my mother.

  6. Nicole, I am so sorry I didn't know your mum had passed away. I've just read back through your blog now and I guess with Christmas and what not I wasn't visiting blogs as often and I hadn't heard your sad news. I sorry for your loss and I can only imagine the void that is left behind when your mum is no longer in your life - it will take time and happy memories to find your new normal.
    Congratulations on selling a painting and I hope that your artwork provides a happy distraction. x

  7. I love the colors in your abstract painting in front of the abstract curtains, Nicole. I am so sorry that you have lost your mother. Getting things in order at a time of sorrow is very hard. I just went through with that 15 months ago with my dh's death. Take it one day at a time. Do the necessary things first. Allow yourself time to grieve. It's natural, normal, and healthy. I am so glad you are painting because holding on to a bit of the old normal is very good. Congratulations on your sale.

  14. Dear Nicole! I'm sorry for your loss! When your mother dies the person who brought you to this earth is gone and it is a great loss. You were lucky to have a close bond to your mother, as I could read on an earlier post. Wishing you the best to learn to live a beautiful life in future.
    Hugs Ilona

    I hope you can continue to be strong and find solice within your family, friends and art
    Hugs :)

  21. I am sorry to hear, that you´ve loost your mother. I understand your feelings, I have gone through the same. You have only a big missing feeling, I have still and if possible more now than at the time it happened. - You have done a painting in a different style, perhaps searching new paths to go.

  23. Sorry to hear about your mom. I know the situation, my father passed away in September, luckily I have a brother, too.

    I see coming spring, the birth of greenery in your painting, hope and serenity.
