Hi, my name is Mary J Russell and I live in Oklahoma. I was a stay-at-home mom and now my children are grown.
For much of my life, I will be painting my Mom, Flora Mae, or Mothers and their precious expressions of the love they have imprinted in our hearts. It will be expressing happy memories and details of who they are and who they were. Seeing them happy doing something they love, with the simple little gold nuggets that, we know, Jesus gave them to helped them through the hard times. My art, I hope to be, an encouraging little window that will remind me of what makes me the happiest...seeing someone I love so dearly...seeing them happy!
My favorite scenes in a painting will be painting moms or ladies outdoors (or in the kitchen) doing something they love to do, or are known for. Mothers with their children, grandchildren, their hobby or work...cooking, sewing, shopping, gardening, having coffee with a friend or family member.
