This is a copy/drawing of my mother's painting. She must have painted her work circa 1965, when I was aged twenty-seven. I never knew her and only discovered her granddaughter about six years ago. It was her granddaughter who gave me a copy of the story of her early life in Walkern, Hertfordshire - and it is there that my mother's painting appears, among the handwritten pages.
The copying of her painting has been a sort of pilgrimage - where I trace my mother's own work and think much about her as I do so.
