Happy Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day, everyone! Today is also my dear departed brother's birthday, so I'm thinking of both Mom & Tom today. They've been gone from the physical world for awhile now, but not a day goes by that I don't think of them.....I'm really glad they were "mine".

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Mother's Day Flowers, oil on textured 12x12 gallery wrapped canvas
Bottom Photo: Bernice Bergin 1919-2004
(Thanks to Jim Seidelman for the merged photo)

Happy Mother's Day, Celeste. It's a good day for remembering people close to our heart. That photograph is beautiful.

Hi, Celeste,
I know your feeling very much. Our strength is "sublimate emotions" to art work. Let us keep enjoying it!!
Best wishes&Hugs, Sadami

Hi Celeste,
It's good to have a day to think about our Moms. Even if she has left the physical Earth, she is still with you. I am sure your Mom would love the painting you did for her.

Happy Mother's Day Celeste. It's good to remember those we love. I'm glad you had your Mom and Tom too.

Your flower painting is fantastic!

Happy memories of your Mom.

Know how you feel Celeste, for tomorrow would have been my Father's and 1 brother's shared birthday, which sometimes would fall on Mothers Day. Miss my Dad too which doesn't lessen with passing days.

Love your looseness - beautiful bouquet!

Your Mother's Day Flowers have great darks and brights. Bernice and Celeste--both names have accented second syllables-- somehow, that feels significant.

Beautiful photograph, beautiful mother. Hope you had a great day.

Gorgeous bouquet, my friend, and with your magical style. Your mom is lovely!

The painting came out great Celeste. I love the photograph too. It's very special. Happy belated Mother's Day to you too.

A belated happy Mother's Day. My mom has been gone seven years now, and in an odd way I find the day to be more meaningful and her presence is deeper and guides me more than even when she was on this earth.

By the way, you might want to check my post today about my return to basenjiland. And if you ever decide to paint from one of those photos of Bow I would be so deeply honored.
