One of the reasons I wanted to start a blog was to have a record of the pieces that I have made and sent out into the world. Perhaps it is apt then that the first one I chose to post is called “Mother and Child”. It was made for my Grandmother on her 90th Birthday. Family was everything to her. My Grandmother has passed on now, but the painting still hangs in her bedroom in the house now shared by her five daughters, two granddaughters and her great-grandson.
