Mel, I love that you called my mother’s portrait “a very strong tribute to all women.” While I wanted to capture a likeness of her today, I also wanted to convey the woman I’ve loved as my mom my entire life. So, I brightened the eyes a bit and let the watercolor suggest many shades of hair color with the passing of time.
