The music room (four generations)

91cmx76cm acrylic on cotton canvas 2011 Private collection

The music room in the house where I grew up in Canada.

My maternal grandmother who studied at the Conservatorium and who taught piano went to the piano factory to choose ours, an upright grand.

My grandmother played it, my mother played it, my brothers and I played it, and our children played it.

The flannel flower and grevillea add Australia to my Canadian story.
