On the Street


Here is my first post for the Self Portrait challenge, "On the Street." It is my mother, shortly before she died, my daughter, and I. I am the one at the top right kneeling. Not all streets are the same. (Click image to view larger.) (I have also just posted some juvenalia self-portraits.)

Although we are all smiling here, I have yet to come to terms with my mother's recent death.

I'm sorry to read of your mother's death.

Your portrait seems to be set in an eerie grieving landscape, especially when viewed large.

Thank you. I'm very sad.

Yes, that was what I had in mind, than you for being perceptive and kind. And welcome. Mary :-D
