i told my mom months and months ago that for graduation, i wanted her to paint me something.
my mom is such a talented artist--- painting and sculpture being her strong suits and so i thought, i wanted to have my mother utilize her master's degree in fine arts to award me for my master's of arts.
i sent my mamma, peggy this photo of manarola in cinque terre, italy.
and look how she captured it.
she's hasn't been to manarola... but she really got everything right. Every single detail makes me happy.
in fact, when she gave me the painting i started to cry because i was so excited, so overwhelmed by how beautiful the painting is and so grateful for all the time my mother spent on the painting.
(and now all my siblings want a painting from my mom. ha, figures.)
thank you mom.
thank you for inspiring me to pursue my talents and education through your incredible example.
