Far from the tree..

This is my mother, Virginia Packard.  She was an accomplished artist, known for her ability to capture the essence of Martha's Vineyard.  She showed regularly at The Granary Gallery and the Field Gallery.
I did not start painting until she died, and only then to feel closer to her.  I avoided Vineyard landscapes for a long time.  She was much better at them than I will ever be.  But I'm better at still lifes. Go figure...
