Do you recognise the Lady in the painting? It's my Grandma, your Great-Grandma, Omeh. She was painted by my aunt Homa (Maman's sister), who is a very talented artist.
I like this painting not only because of its 'subject' but also because of the way Omeh was presented - just being herself, hard-working, humble but proud woman. In the painting she is making some sort of patch blanket and i am pretty sure that's exactly what she was doing when she was being painted :-) She always was busy with something and was constantly working one way or another. She was a great mother to all her children and a wonderful Grandma to me.
