I’m a proud mom. What can I say?
How wonderful it is to watch your adult children succeed in doing what they love. For Dawne, it’s art. She has always been creative. I remember her amazing plasticine art when she was in Elementary school and all the hours she spent colouring, cutting, glueing and drawing in her spare time. I also remember that she couldn’t just put the napkins on the table at dinner – she had to create something beautiful with them. She made some incredibly creative gifts too!
Dawne has always been an artist so you can imagine how encouraged we all were when she was asked to exhibit her art in a downtown Toronto restaurant.
She had her first show a couple of weeks ago and it was a great success.
Here’s some of her work – all pictures were taken by me so they are definitely not professional!
It was fun to watch people talking about Dawne’s art.
I love this one! It’s fun and light and also Chris’ favourite candy!
I like the way Dawne displayed these four pictures.
I think this was one of Dawne’s first paintings.
It was a wonderful evening of socializing and appreciating Dawne’s talent.
The restaurant was crowded for the entire night but what joy I felt as I stole glances of Dawne talking about her art with friends, family and potential buyers. Check out her website and Instagram!
