I love this painting because my mother looks so peaceful. She is totally unaware that she will lose both her father and later her mother when she was still a child. She would become a wonderful teacher and later after retirement she studied to be a Deacon of the church. She was a hard working parish and district councillor and helped many people. Above all she was a loving mother to my sister and me. I miss her every day. I have many photographs of her but this painting is my favourite.
