Today is day two of the seven paintings in seven days
challenge I was invited to take part in by the amazing scultptor
Gabrielle Fischer Horvath.  This painting is one of my
favourites because it captures a sweet moment with
my lovely mother-in-law and her great granddaughter.
My mother-in-law Daisy van Schaik is dead now, and
I am so happy I have this image to remember her by.
She was so delighted with this beautiful baby, and the
moment lives on in my painting.

I'm grateful to Gabrielle for this challenge, and for making
me think about what matters in my art.

Have a loving the people you love day.
