Thinking of family today. This is a watercolor I painted as part of a book proposal for a follow-up to my first book, Every Grain of Rice. That's my grandfather in the scanned photo. I printed it onto the watercolor paper before I started painting around it. He's holding my brother and cousin, and the photo reminded me of the Buddha figure that sat on his mantel.


  1. Ellen, this is very beautiful and timely. I'm glad to see you posting today.

    Love, Jeri

  2. This is really lovely. I don't remember seeing this painting before. Big hugs.
