self portrait tuesday: två kerstin



i look so sad in the pic below, so had to post a different pic of the two kerstins, my mormor and myself, from a couple years ago. i see some cheek resemblance!



this painting is of my mormor and was painted when she was a girl.
for my 25th birthday, mormor said i could choose a painting from her collection and i chose this one. i love the painting itself and that it is of my mormor. she fills my heart with love. (sounds corny, but is true.)
(too bad the painting is a bit fuzzy in this pic.)

oh god! the photos are amazing and that painting!! ah-soooo beautiful! what a treature you have it.

my grandmother had a portrait done when he was in her 40's, which hangs in my grandfather's house (she passed away 5 years ago) and at the time everyone though she was so indulgent to hire an artist to paint a portrait of her (especially becasue my family is full of painters!)but now we all treasure it so much. thank you for sharing!

That is a lovely self-portrait with the portrait. And the Two Kerstins is great.
