This is a painting of my great, great, great, great grandmother. She is commonly known in the family as Great, Great.
She has been hanging above my mother’s fireplace for years and was joined a few years by the paintings of one of her sons and his wife.
We know her story, we have her image, and that of one of her children.
I have lost 2 brothers. The first one, Jeff when he was 15. We have very few photographs of him. The second, Jon, only a few years ago. Losing my brothers made me want to have as many photographs of family members as I possibly could, so when I got my first camera, I took hundreds of family photographs. Do you know where all of those precious memories are? On my hard drive! We have a couple of small printed images, but nothing as beautiful as the painting of Great Great.
So I have made it my mission to create memories, beautiful, timeless pieces of art, to display and treasure.
Great , Great is just canvas and oil paint. The value of her painting is not in the canvas or the paint, it is in the image. The time the artist put into capturing her beauty, her essence, her soul for future generations to treasure.
