Yes, they are quite different from the usual portrayals.
Nice of you to feature/remember Mary today.

Of course, the mother I imagine is the portrait in my living room painted by Marcus Blahove. When he began, she asked if he was going to make her old and fat. He replied that he could make her as young and as thin as she wanted to be. He painted her sitting next to her piano with a book on the table beside her--thus showing her two favorite pastimes. It is a treasure. JTM

Jane:

Thank you for sharing that wonderful MARCUS BLAHOVE story. It would be nice to have more written about this fabulous 20th century portrait artist!

Enjoy that portrait of your mother and all of the memories that come rushing back as you reflect on the past and dream of the future today. Happy Mother's Day!
