Last month this photograph of hers won a ribbon in the Spring Art Show ~
|Photograph by Isabella Bruno|
She snapped the picture in the side view mirror of my car on the drive home from school one day. She edited it so that only the image in the mirror was in color.
I just love it - the composition, the splash of color, the fact that we were in my car, and that Isabella edited it just so. She captured the quirkiness of the corner building, the contrast in architectural features, the round and angular shaped subjects, and so on...
Fast forward to this afternoon and this is the precious gift she gave me ~

She recreated her photograph as a painting and incorporated tangle patterns into the background. Isn't that amazing?
What a fabulous Mother's Day gift from my budding artist, Isabella. She really made my day!
