Breakfast with Millie

This gouache painting is of me at home having breakfast with Millie when she was 5.  This painting has sold long ago.  It is filled with little things that were important to me at the time. (Millie is 16 now).  The 'Elmo' toy on the table, Millie's favourite heart gumboots, the stain glass window Clyde made, the daffodils from our garden, Millie's drawings, a kauri table I brought with my first husband, a variety of ceramics from local potters 'eyecon', the morning black coffee....the spiral key ring Clyde brought me.  I have been thinking about returning to this style of painting.  It is almost a documentary...a historical record of a time and place....
