"Mama Sissy"


5”x 8”
Acrylic on Bristol
My grandmother turns one hundred this year. I’ve always admired her spontaneity and eagerness to try new things. These are characteristics she still has even now later in her life. Few objects in her home are used for there original purpose. She lived the phrase “necessity is the mother of invention." It wasn’t until recently that I came to the understanding that not everyone had this ability. Maybe she would have been an artist if she’d been born a century later.
