a mother’s day gift
Ten days ago, I was asked to do a very special piece for five special women who wanted to gift a painting to their mama for Mother’s Day (March 21st). I met with two of the sisters who gave me a lowdown of what their mother is like and what she likes. She likes gathering her family around her. She likes being independent. And she likes technology. And Apple. And iPads. I wanted to personalize the painting further with an incarnation of Eve for each of the women who are closest to the mother: that’s the mother herself, her five daughters, and the two grand-daughters on either side of the painting. I haven’t titled this work. I felt it would have been too presumptuous to give it a title, that maybe it should be named by the woman it was gifted to.
