This piece is ready to start painting. It is based on a little photograph of my Great Grandmother, Erma, and what few stories I have heard about her. She grew up in a small town on the border of Utah and Idaho. As a young woman, she left home and followed her sister further west. She eventually settled and raised her family across the bay from San Francisco. It is a really tiny piece, only 5 x 7 inches. I had to go buy some extra tiny paint brushes to help with all the tiny details.
