Repost: My Mother (1927-1992)

A re-post from the artchives (original posting date 15 March 2012) - with the blog in its current form over seven years old, I intend to dig up some of the older posts once in a while. I selected this one because it would have been her 89th birthday today (small adjustment in text).

Can't believe it is already almost 25 years ago that my mother succumbed to cancer. This is a portrait of her that I commissioned in 1999 in Singapore, by a young Chinese artist. Since then, that artist has dropped the name Rosina, we started dating, and in 2000 she became my wife.
