Most of the time my Mum painted pictures from the nature around their summer cottage. She loved to stay there and they spent much time there even during winters. The deep woods and the marshlands inspired her.

There are more than 200 watercolour paintings. I have grouped them by size. The size is the paper size, not always the size of the painting.

~23x30cm (~9×12″)

~25x35cm (~10×14″)

~28x35cm (~11×14″)

~30x30cm (12×12″)

~30x40cm (~12×16″)

~30x42cm (~12×16,5″)

~40x51cm (~16×20″)

  1. It is wonderful that you have been able to work through you sadness by sharing part of your mom with us all. She had a talent that she shared with you. You are very creative too, that is something to be happy about. Share the happy memories, although it hurts. It can make it easier to deal with at times. Heartfelt sympathy to you and yours.
    If you are a Bible reader, we have a hope in Rev. 21:3-5 hope this is comforting. XO
