 :hurrah  Big congrats to your mom!
My mom had an unexpected artistic success when she was 85, and it was one of the happiest days of her life. I'm sure your family is all schepping naches (Yiddish for over the moon with shared happiness).

Thanks so much, everyone. My mom is so elated  when I show her these posts.

To Dinalapomy: Her main media are acrylic (now) and watercolor (previously).

As to creativity running in the family, I hope so, although today I can't seem to get off square one.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
