This is my vision of myself and husband growing older together walking on slippery ice. The hand clasp is symbolic of being there for each other. This is one of the illustrations for a book dedicated to my grandchildren, "When I Get To Be Older"
Mama leaving for the beyond.
I painted mama and I couple a days before she passed away. She said she was tired and wanted a larger space then the nursing home room. I had visions of her desires for her existing in an exotic friendly atmosphere.
She liked posing for me.
The drawing on the easel is copied from a drawing on a prepared board
for an egg tempera she never completed from before or just after I was born.
My art process is a part of my whole way of living and dreaming. For more of my paintings about relationships see some of my old blogs.
