"My Mom " Watercolor by Jenny Hoang

  Meet Jenny Hoang: This painting is a portrait my Mother in her late 40's with her black velvet turban and her smile as I remember her now. It was during the hardest time of her life: The French War just began (1945-1954). It took away my three brothers and my father's career. I recalled her beauty and her inner strength amidst famine and despair. It was her courage and devotion that has sustained the family all along. When we lived in New York, she encouraged me to take a Major in Arts and Graphics. I love my Mom as much as I love painting. She passed away in Los Angeles at 96 years old.
