When my mom died last week, I had this urge to remember her as she was when I was little, when she was young and gorgeous and full of youthful vigor, and I was small enough to look way up to her 5’ frame. I looked for photos that showed her with bright clear hazel eyes and supple skin, from before cancer and the ravages of aging slowed her down.

This version of my mother is from a year before I was born. She seems to be wearing a kimono, dressed for a tea party, though if there was a story about the photo this drawing is based on, she never told me. I like to think she’s at an exotic (in those days) Japanese restaurant in NYC, with my dad, enjoying life, on a rare day when someone else was watching my older brother.  

I'm selling both the original and prints. The prints are gorgeous.

The original is 24" x 18" and the prints are 22" x 17", almost full size. Both are signed on the back. I am am so excited about the quality of these prints. It's uncanny how they capture all the nuance and subtle coloration of the original. People who have seen these prints cannot believe that they are not looking at an original. It's not a poster, but rather a full representation of my vision.

I use a top-of-the-line Epson printer with pigment ink that is tested to last 200 years. I print on Hahnemühle German Etching all-cotton archival 310 g/mA Paper.

Each print is numbered and signed by me.
