I always think of my Mom when I see a bouquet of Tulips. They are one of my very favorite flowers in the spring.
I can't help but smile and think of my Mom and the beauty she glimpsed as a child growing up in the Netherlands. Tulips and windmills. A landscape of dazzling color and heavenly scent comes to mind.
My Mom was born in Indonesia and later moved with her family to the Netherlands when Indonesia fought for independence from Dutch colonialism.
A history I need to study!
When my Mom was in her early teens she and her family moved to the United States. They came as passengers on a big ship. I found the passenger list on Ancestry.com- so cool!
It has been just over a year since my Mom passed away.
I fill my house with Tulips and I think of her!
I have been experimenting with some WONDERFUL NEW- but not yet released textures. Kim is creating thirty new textures in thirty days. LUCKY me- I get to test them out! You can see on my tulip images how gorgeous they are.
AND...It's not too late to sign up for kim's On-Line class, "The Art Of Texture- The Secrets Revealed. It is packed full of Good Things. I am amazed at the work that has been put into this class! I am very IMPRESSED. It's not just a techy class but a hands on art class too! The knowledge and passion that Kim shares is just plain Wonderful. I have learned SO much and I am the "slow" girl at this techy type of stuff!
Check out ALL the GOODNESS here!
Have a beautiful weekend.
