My mother turns 90 this coming February.  My brother who cares for her asked me to do a painting of her.  At first I hesitated.  It is a very emotional type of painting. I chose the photo I would use from those taken from my parents 65th wedding celebration, in 2009.  My father passed away 2 1/2 years ago.  The wedding anniversary was a special occasion for them both, although he wasn’t well at the time and left us the next spring.

This painting is finished for now – I will probably revisit it over the next few months when I can see and correct any issues it has.
