“Granny, AKA Molly Burke”, 1976, 36″ x 36″ Oil on Canvas
Granny is my very fave painting, is in my private collection and the first painting I see when I wake up!
She was done during my first attempt at art school at the Okanagan College in Kelowna. Unfortunately or fortunately they showed the class the most boring film of Sir Kenneth Clarke giving a lecture on Michelangelo.
The sculptures were beautiful and I decided at that moment I was going to see a real Michelangelo. Off I went to see the world and find a Michelangelo!
And that is another story completely!
Granny was my Father’s Mom!
I never met her. Her real was Mary Pickering and the legend has it she was a Scottish opera star. Works for me!
Make it a lovely day on day 43, I think of lockdown!
