The Things We Save - Sailor Dress - Painting

The Things We Save - Sailor Dress
Oil on Masonite
This was my friend's dress worn in the 50s. A memory of a beloved daughter's childhood treasured and perfectly preserved by her mother who died recently. There it hung, cleaned and pressed and covered with plastic, hanging in the back of the small apartment closet, as if it might be put on and worn again any day. This is a tribute to a mother's devotion and love and the sweet  memory of youth.
