Soon it will be Mother’s Day. I’m going to post some of my mother’s paintings and do a little tribute to her. Until then, I found my first successful oil painting. It’s one of the prophets from the Bible. I was named after a prophet but I’m more of a non-prophet. Ha ha ha, that sure gets old fast. I remember painting the parts that interested me and leaving the rest just struck in. That explains the nude-tree being pretty well done and the background unfinished. Don’t remember what was up with cats that year.
