I felt liked painting a topic and for some reason death came instantly. Last year had to be the worst year for my family, we lost 5 members in a single year, all of whom I was really close to. I took into consideration the family members who have suffered the most from their loss and my grandma came into the centre of my thoughts. Not only has she lost her husband but in the same year she lost a son and a sister. My mother made a trip to support her during the memorial, she took lots of pictures and in every single picture she had this low sinking facial expression. She looked like she had a lot of emotions going at once. I feel that my FMP (final major project) will consist a lot of portraits of her and somehow the bubbles managed to slip into this painting too.
