Roses for Mama

“Roses for Mama”
Acrylic on Canvas – April 2015

My mother died back in 2008. However, her favorite flower was always roses and to make her happy we had planted a rose garden in our backyard. I also used to sketch her roses as she had once doodled for me when I was little. This will be my first mother’s day in the US since her death and next week I will go take roses to her grave. But as I know in death that her spirit lives on I figured that I would paint her a rose garden as she (would have) appreciated that more than the bouquet itself.

    My grandmother on my mom’s side died in 2008 as well. I was close to her even though I couldn’t speak or understand Spanish. I’ll have to ask my mom what were her favorite flowers. I know my mom”s is also roses. I know I will plant her a rose garden and I already know where I want to put it. Beautiful painting!
