Day 158- Study of my mother's photo

Day 158- Study of my mother's photo-
9 x 12 inches acrylics on paper
My mother has amazing patience. She sends us newspaper clips about art,
letters, poems (her own), books (her own), and always photographs. She has been doing this continuously over the last ten years or so, in an effort to bridge this long distance between us. So while looking through an envelope she had recently sent us, I thought that by painting from her photos I would be doing my half to building that bridge. As a painting this is unresolved, it's just a study that I want to paint much larger (but she's there)
