When it rains it pours! I have been working on so many projects that I am not painting on my own work as often as I would like. Lots of commissions lately. My print business has been really taking off and I find myself needing a larger space but I so love working from home. My mother (soon to be 92) has been moved to Kennebunk Maine to be closer to my three older sisters as she has been declining both mentally and physically. I try to see her once a week . At the same time, Sam has been going through another rough patch but is starting to get better. I am so grateful for that.
This new painting was inspired by a family I came across on Instagram. The mom posts such wonderful everyday scenes of life with 6 children! I am from a family of seven BTW. I was totally inspired by their amazing old world shabby chic home. in England. This piece "Family Portrait" is 20x16 painted on a cradled wood panel with painted sides. It would make a great mother's day gift.
Thanks for looking and have a nice day today.
