Speaking of my mother, this summer after she passed away, I did this painting of her from a picture of when she was 13 years old. I had a show coming up at a gallery last September and I painted it for that. I put a quote with it;
"I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then" Lewis Carroll
I liked that quote a lot. Who knows how our life will turn out at that age? My mom was very blessed and found a wonderful man to share her life with. They had such a happy marriage, and I think they brought out the best in each other.
So I painted this as tribute to my parents but especially to my dad and how his love made my mother so very happy. Thank you dad!
