This piece is another part of a series of family portraits. Mildred Daniel or “Gran” was my grandmother on my mother’s side. The portrait – inspired by old photographs taken in the 1930s and early 40s – draws from the epoch of World War II. Her husband – Jack – was across Europe and Asia fighting one of the most bloody and difficult wars of that century. Gran was a young woman then… working, taking care of a family, and waiting for the war to end.
