this painting was painted by my grandmother of me when i was around 7 years old
she was a strong role model for me and went to art school with the teenagers in her forties and since i was her oldest grandchild and stayed at her house most weekends of my childhood , i became her model ..... she was very quiet , we didn’t have to talk much , 2 introverts that enjoyed each other’s fertile silences .
it wasn’t until recently i discovered that perhaps this also carried the wonderful weight of me learning first the "female gaze" ?
before the other one ?
also with my mother being an art director on my first album cover that came out when i was 11 ?
 ? question ?
