When she saw it, she cried.
So knowing that it is so meaningful to her, I thought about using it for her gift. I just didn't want it to upset her whenever she saw it. I was hoping that instead, seeing it would bring back all the amazing memories and stories, that naturally get forgotten about everyday.
In making this, I had to make some decisions. I thought it would be nice to display the lyrics in a bold, modern take since the song was so old. I liked the mix of ideas and themes. For color choices, I knew I wanted the piece to be warm. I wanted her to feel alive when she saw it. The background is natural, but the letters are metallic. I used acrylic paint for both.
I absolutely love the way this turned out. And Mom does too. We miss you, Nana, Papa and Lisa.
