Helping a friend throw a surprise party for her mother, I was charged with sorting and presenting the old photos of her. When, I found this one, I asked if I could please keep a copy and was allowed to.. Yah!!
I loved the photo and knowing the beautiful woman the child grew into, I created this piece. Heather loves her garden and spends a huge amount of time in it. She is wears lovely bright clothes always and is a beautiful, strong, loving person.
My work needed to reflect this - and with a combination of lace, paint, wire and an ornate handle, I think I succeeded.
