This is my first oil painting, has a lot of meaning to it as I was painting this and intended this to be bright and happy, although I could not get the colors to brighten up with joy. I had 3 missed calls when I was complete and found out that the woman who raised me (my grandmother) had passed away as I was painting this. I guess this was her way of saying goodbye.
