24×36 Oil on Masonite, 1996

This painting is about a sudden visit where the grandchildren carry flowers and a board writing with those unexpected expressions that make Grandma cry of joy.

CERTIFICATE, Happy Birth Day Grandma, we thank you for giving birth to our mom, for watching over us, for telling us histories and for punishing us when we break your rules. We realize that you want us to be good. When we grow up, we will buy you an airplane, a house and a beautiful car. Grandma we love you for every thing except that you talk too much some time.

NOTE: Wouldn’t it be good to tell the kids about this history, what do you think?
