From Across the Pond...And Looking Back / by Uschi Jeffcoat

I recently had the privilege of painting a set of grandchildren for a special friend.


Three of the four happened to be British...The morning I went to photograph the three British children, they had arrived the night before from that long flight.

And it made me think of how excited I always was - as I child to go see my family in Germany. And how that was my normal !   Flying to another country to see family.

I now recognize that as an incredible gift and also how very difficult it is to be SO FAR from family.

So for my friend Jennifer, I hope these little paintings make all four of these sweet grands of yours feel close when miles may make it seem and feel otherwise.

All four have such distinct personalities but I can tell each one of these little ones adore you to the moon and back!
