mother and child reunion

giclee image size:

original in private collection

When I first learned that my mother was diagnosed with late stage lung cancer,
I felt unmoored. I was lucky to have a great friendship with my mom, which
included endlessly long afternoons of high-intensity, bingo-filled Scrabble.
My loss was going to be profound, and I was aware that I stood at an intersection
of consciousness, because I also had a ten-year old daughter that I felt equally
attached to. Mother and Child Reunion was my expression of loss and constancy.
The big old barn with it’s little outbuilding nearby was located at the corner of
Curtis Avenue and Stratton Road in Rutland, Vermont.
The barns were demolished a few years after the painting was completed.

This painting was available through the Vermont Life magazine 2012-2013 catalogue
as a framed and matted giclee print, in an 11×14 inch brushed gold Nielsen metal frame.
The print was also available matted and unframed. I felt honored to be included with
so many great Vermont artists.

This painting is available as part of a set of beautifully printed notecards
