Time To Shop!

It has come around again- it is time for us all to show love and appreciation for one of the most important people in our lives... our Moms. I know I feel like I have the best mom ever... I try every day to be as good and kind and loving to my children as she has been to my sisters and me. Somedays I do well, others are more of a struggle, but the goal is always there. Recently I came face to face with the thought of something bad happening to her and I could hardly bear it. I am fortunate to have my mom living here in the same city and to be able to call her up (or text her- she recently learned how) any time I want. That scary thought got me thinking of friends who have had to watch their moms struggle in some way or perhaps lose that struggle. It is still unimaginable to me and I feel deeply for those who have walked that path.

On a lighter note, we need to give all kinds of props and shout outs to our moms! As Mother's Day approaches I thought I would highlight some of the paintings I have at Lifestyles by Darrell Bell Gallery in Saskatoon. An original painting makes a one-of-a-kind gift and may just be what your mom would appreciate. Or perhaps you are a mom yourself and you can drop some hints for the one you want! Of course Darrell has many other lovely and special gift ideas, so keep his art and design gift shop in mind when you are out shopping.


Here is a sampling of the paintings I have available at Lifestyles:

Beautiful work. I miss my own mother deeply as the date rolls around. I was always in New York these past few years, but we talked on the phone and I went to see her afterwards.

Hug your Mom, and I hope you sell all of your beautiful work.

XOXOXOXOXO barbara

Thank you and yes, you have been in my thoughts lately. I am sure it was a bittersweet day for you and I know you are lonely for your mom.
