in honor of Springtime and Mother's Day Sunday May 9th 2010.

Several years ago when my Mother was living with me, and I was caring for her while sick, I planted a climbing Pink Rose outside her bedroom window for her to enjoy. Pink roses were her very favorite and these gorgeous blooms made her so happy. Since Mom's passing the roses have continually bloomed each Spring and become prettier as time goes on. Not long after I planted this climber, I painted a design I named Mother's Rose from the inspirations of the vine itself, old graphics and the many roses mom had grown over the years. So in honor of Mother's Day coming I am giving away a print copy of that original work arriving to the winner oval matted in light off white and ready to frame with any 11" X 14" frame.

In addition to my print I am including a copy of the book, Delight in the Details by Lisa M. Pace. It is a gorgeous book with paper tag and card designs you will just love, using mixed media and accents.

Here are a few pics of the pink rose vine this season.

Last week was very busy, and along the way I have reorganized my store room and redesigned another area of our backyard landscape with my best guy. Tired, but having fun!! It's back to the studio for me and lots of creating going on. Hope to see you again soon to share more creations.
Thank you for entering my Springtime giveaway in honor of the season, Mother's Day and YOU!

Blessings and Blue Skies, Celestina Marie
