20"x16" oil on canvas
Early spring 2015 my mother suffered a massive stroke that left her with difficulties in speaking and in mobility (her left side to be exact). She spent a week in the hospital and then 2 months in a rehabilitation center. We visited her several times a week and always on Sunday evenings after church. On one particular Sunday visit, we visited out in the common area where most of us sat on the couch, but my Dad was in one of the arm chairs with my daughter sitting on his lap. They seemed to be in their own little world laughing and looking through pictures in a magazine. I pulled out my phone and snuck a couple of photos with the full intention of recreating the moment on canvas.
This piece has been completed for about a month, and I'm just getting around to posting this...I find it fitting that Grandparent's Day is the day that it is getting posted.
Happy Grandparents Day!
