Enlightened Artist Blog: Do you need a unique gift for graduation (For women who shop Prada)

Are you a mom that has been persistent in standing by your child while going through the college application process? Have you been a nudger, encourager… nagger? Or have you observed your child stepping up to the plate and do the entire process him/her self?

Joy of the Sun

I am proud mama because both of my sons had the persistence to take over the process and get to go to their dream school. All I had to do was sit back, paint, meditate, cheerlead and watch them in amazement!

Of course I did raise them to be able to do this. They are my sonflowers, my light, my creations! For years I infused my boys with my brilliant energy and they infused me with their love. This is the same energy that I put into my artwork.

If you are a mom, dad, grandparent or godparent who feels this same way, then this post is for you! The reason I say this is because, I think that you deserve a graduation gift to commemorate you raising your brilliant child.

I noticed that others were feeling the same way when my first son graduated so I created the sonflower painting collection for moms whose kids were headed off to college or had already been there. This is a piece that is infused by the beautiful loving energy of a mama raising her children.

The Brightest One

Both of my boys with their amazing abilities are now going to school far away. My youngest son is finishing his freshman year at Georgetown and the older son is finishing his junior year at Vassar and doing an internship in Germany.
