    I have never really known much about my mother's side and have always imagined what my grandmother would have looked like if I ever met her. My family is of Polynesian descent and are across the world from me. So I had this idea of re-creating a portrait of my grandmother with this vision of her coming home after walking the path to the market to sell fruit from her farm & embracing her daughters after their long day. This one is for you Nanay. XO

    I agree with Vanessa Hirsch's comment, "Beautiful color tones and lighting! It has a vintage feeling." This portrait feels timeless and a lovely modern homage to your own grandmother.
