Three Elegant Old Ladies and Their Acolytes
This painting explores the traditions passed from mother and aunt to daughters, nieces and granddaughters. Here we see three china tiered dessert trays given to us by our mothers and an aunt. The trays are full of the homemade desserts my sisters and my sister-in-law and I make in my family to mark special occasions. Each of my sisters and my sister-in-law sent me a photo of their favorite tea cup and told me their favorite dessert. This is a family portrait so my father and brother are included and our children's initials are included in code.
