Ida

I used a vintage photograph of my Mother as a young girl for this painting. The reference photo was sepia tone and I added the color, surrounding Mother in blue, her favorite color. Her parents came from Sweden and settled in Irwin, Pennsylvania. Ida Mae Eckberg was the youngest of six children. Isn't she sweet?

Fruit doesn't fall far from the tree...your mother was obviously "sweet" and you captured her essence and yours at the same time! Beautiful art!
