Mother and me at the piano by Vilva Mother and me at the piano by Vilva
Tumblr'd here!:[link]

Before I came along, my mom use to teach piano in San Francisco and when I was old enough, she taught me as well! I don't really practice much anymore and the only thing I occasionally play now is Mozart's Turkish March :XD: but I'll always remember how much fun it was playing the piano with her and how she would create music exercises and games to help me improve! :love: Even now, my mom has been extremely supportive of me and my artistic pursuits and she is honestly one of my best friends :heart: I really wanted to draw something reminiscent of our piano lessons for mother's day, so this was the card design I came up with! I didn't spend as much time on this as I planned I started it yesterday D:and it was printed with that lousy printer of ours which fades away my colors, but my mom really loved it and that's all I wanted out of this piece, really! :heart: Anyway... Happy Mother's day, Moms! :love:


This is also a homage to Pierre Auguste Renoir's Two Young Girls at a Piano:[link] .We had a copy of it hung in our music room so it was also one of the first classical paintings I was exposed to and also one of my favorites! :D Hopefully some of you caught the reference:XD:

My mom taught me piano to! I can't really practice now, though, because I've moved out and don't have a piano anymore. Used to play music from movies and such.
She also had a diary with that same painting on it, and she gave it to me when I was young. I always think of her when I see that painting.

So, needless to say, I love this artwork you've done. Very nostalgic and sweet :aww:

I really love this, as I love pretty much everything you do, but I have a problem with your mother's shirt. The pattern goes straight across, with no regard to how she is bending. It looks fine, because there wouldn't be *that* much variance from what I can see, but it would be better if you tweaked the parallelograms a bit to make it more... realistic, I guess?
Please don't take this too harshly; the painting is still lovely.

I'm glad you do! :heart: I completely see what you're talking about. I only added in those patterns as an afterthought, actually xD and I do appreciate the constructive criticism, really! :aww: Thank you! :hug:
