January 13th, 2014. Still couldn’t get it —on Sunday I stopped—T. said

she looked like an older R. I thought I got it, but then the next day the face just

didn’t seem right.

The following are some visual examples of the process and transformation:

Painted in the early morning—hardly had any light –it was dark and

drizzly outside. I tried painting in the dark, without my glasses—tried

to capture something within---beyond my preconceptions....

Finally a brush stroke, an accident; something started to appear,

exactly what I had in mind: So hard and so frustrating. How does one

depict a mother?

I wanted my mother’s expression but not her face—a strong woman,

confident: Holding her baby but still detached ---absorbed in her

thoughts—with a look of worry… I checked it again at night –yes, it

was right and I was happy. All is good; all is worth it.
