On Her Way to 100!
My sister is doing a series of protraits! Each is done on a 12" X 12" canvas with museum edge. She has been working very hard on them as she heads towards her goal of 100! Quite a challenge:) Anyway, she is hoping for a gallery showing sometime next year in conjunction with her daughter, Tracey (my one and only niece). Tracey has been traveling through China, Tibet, Thialand and India for the past 4 months taking pictures. Her portraits are magnificent. Sandy, my sister, is hoping to have Tracey's photos and her own paintings shown together. Wouldn't that be fantastic? Yes, yes, and yes! The portrait in the upper and lower left corners is a portrait of one of my sister's students who recently died from cancer. In this portrait you can see her hair just starting to grow back after chemo. Sandy said she presented the portrait to the girls parents last week! She said it was a very touching moment!
