Our Lady of Perpetual Exhaustion

I have been invited to submit my work in a special exhibition called “Our Lady of Perpetual Exhaustion” from August 27 – October 4, 2013 at the Watergate Gallery. I started painting a veiled lady with a sorrowful face but wasn’t happy with it. I went on vacation and upon return, I scrapped it.

One day, I was looking at old photographs and saw one of my late mother’s on her 81st birthday. Something clicked. I decided to paint her, silver hair and all. The portrait is almost done. Although the exhibition theme inspired me to paint her, I decided to keep it and submit another piece for the exhibition. Back to work.
