This is this time of the year where we think of how can we express our love to our mothers or the mother of our children. I personally will be making her a portrait painting and ship it to her -as she lives miles away- through the post office. Then I thought why not list it as a custom portrait in my Etsy shop so you can also have a personalized portrait especially made for your mother? Here are some ideas of what I can do for you:
1. Remembering the old days:
Research claims that the first five years are the most important years for the mother and for the child. It is where bonding begins and the first memories develops. My oldest is now 5 and my youngest is 1 and a half years old and I really try to appreciate every moment I spend with them.
2. Cherish your special moments when you traveled together:
What are your favorite traveling moments? I would love to know in the comments! Is it visiting the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam? or eating the best pizza in Naples? Or maybe enjoying the best ice cream while walking in the Versailles Gardens. I surly did enjoy that with my mother few years ago.
3. Her Favorite Hobby
I also Can paint her doing her favorite hobby to celebrate what she loves to do!
4. A Personalized Portrait Just for her:
I am sure she will be happy to get her personalized portrait with a nice pattern or floral in the background as a decoration. I make these portraits using gouache painting.
5. Family Time Portrait:
You can also gift her a portrait that celebrate all the family members. Her favorite persons in the world!
You can also gift her a portrait that celebrate all the family members. Her favorite persons in the world! These family portraits are made with mixed media and paper collage. In the example shown above I have also illustrates the family's house in the background and a banner saying "Home Sweet Home".
Happy mother's day in advance!
