I finished my fifth painting over the weekend. It's based on a photo of my Grandma and her younger sister in their First Communion dresses. I just love their expressions and the contrast between the neatness of their pristine dresses and shiny shoes and the shabbiness and roughness of the porch they are standing on. I saw the dresses as blank canvases themselves and so painted them flatly with patterns. The last photo is of my next painting also based on a photo of my Grandma ironing, one of her favorite chores.
