It's quite healthy to see the 50's were not all about 'duck and cover' and 'Red Scare' had nothing to do with color and mood.
Thank you for painting the 50's in aspect of music. People who learned music, learned love in fact. This is, why this difficult time was not waste. Not fore people like your mother, I think.

I love all the Responses! Thank You!
She was always calling me to practice. Being Left-handed,I would play the music chording with my Right, and Melody with my Left. It would really get to her. I loved it.

I really enjoy the expression on her face. It's so puzzling that I can't stop looking at the painting in order to try to figure out what she's feeling!
