Les Fleurs Pour Grandmére

This portrait shows my mother who, at the time of this photo in May of 2017, is 98 years old. She is holding the roses I sent to her for Mother’s Day. My sister, Janice Holien, snapped the photo with her iPhone and send it to me. Immediately, I knew it would be perfect for my Van Gogh portrait project.   All Rights Reserved – Mary A Ritter

I knew when I took this picture that it would become a quilt someday. Entitled En Vacance, it means on vacation literally, but is also the word for tourist in Spanish.                                               All Rights Reserved – Mary A Ritter
