    Mamá

    This is based on a reference pic of my wife´s mother, probably when she was around 18 in the early 1940´s. Never had the chance to know her. I did this as a Mother´s Day present for my wife. (Mother´s Day was yesterday here in Argentina.) Hope you find something of interest.

    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Scott that's a wonderful painting.
    Reminds me so much of many of the photos of
    my family members from that era.

    ScottF,
    What a wonderful tribute and touching gift of the heart. The portrait
    is most elegant and beautifully painted.

    You did a great job on this, dear Scott, for quite a number of rason and under any aspect, artistically and humanly!
    I just wonder why countries don't try to agree on one common Mother's Day all over the world so as to have so many different local celebrations ... I think moms would deserve a sound, universal recognition. If only U.N. could solve this problem at least ... Next I would think to a universal Woman Celebration Day to focus on the lack of equal opportunities and consideration in most places and especially where actual conditions clash with their dignity!
