Myrtle was my Great Aunt & Alma my Grandmother on my Mother’s side & I have such fond memories of them both. They each were wonderful story tellers & many a yarn was shared over a cup of hot tea. The dishes in this painting are a collection from both of them & were handed down to me. I like to think that Myrtle and Alma are still together sharing their stories, laughing & enjoying a hot cup of tea on the other side. The original of this painting I made for my Mother, and it is hanging in her home.
