Fur Elise

Fur Elise
Oil on Canvas
For my mother, Elsie

This is a painting I finished today for my mother, Elsie.

When my three sisters and I were little, Mom would sometimes play her piano for hours. My favorite song she played was Fur Elise.

The painting Fur Elise reminds me of my childhood, and a Mom
who always had time to read to us, who wrote poetry, and who loved music.

I love you, Mom. Happy (early) Valentine's Day!
