Flowers are a bit of a tradition for Mother’s Day. In fact, I believe that Mother’s Day is the single largest holiday for florists.
Flowers are also a bit of a tradition here at Pretty Pink Tulips. The painted kind! Once again, I am thrilled to announce that Kerri Rosenthal is giving one lucky reader a 12×12 original painting of this year’s limited edition or Tulip2K15 as she calls it!
Kerri began painting tulips, early in her career as an artist, inspired from time spent in Holland. As her work began to show up in shelter magazines and become ever more collectable, she decided to limit her tulip paintings to a special collection each Spring. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. Each collection has a different theme, style or color.
This year’s limited edition tulips are rich in majestic purples, with just an edge of black. I’m loving the deep tones.
I asked Kerri to share her thoughts on what Mother’s Day meant to her.
“Mother’s Day — I never really realized how important this day was to me, until I lost my own mother, very suddenly 5 years ago. What her passing has taught me is that we don’t need a special day to celebrate our mother. Life is so unpredictable and we are all so busy running in many directions each day. I cherish every moment I spend with my kids and really try to be present when I am with them. Even if they are not 100% present with me. It is truly a gift to be a mother and sometimes thankless, but always rewarding, even through the toughest times. My children inspire me to be the best mother, wife, friend and painter I can possibly be.”
