I wanted to try painting my grandmothers. However since neither one is still with us, it will require photographic references.

Grandma Whiting was so fill of life and had a wonderful nature so that any attempt to portray her very well is surely going to fall short. Maybe the painting can suggest or remind us of something about her.

As I recall this [modified] chair was her favorite one.

Thinking about her while painting this made me miss her even more. It will be wonderful to again see her some day

I will probably try this again if I can get a reference photograph that is more suitable - this painting is a composite from several.
