1. great portrait of both lao lao and much beloved chong chong. first, it is a joy to see both of them…but, it is also a great portrait, with the drapery behind, rather than a stark wall, adding soft texture. it is posed yet totally alive: chong chong not yet knowing he is supposed to smile, grandma beaming with delight in a real way.

    i look forward to having a portrait taken, as paternal grandmother, with chong chong when i visit. and also one with lao lao, maternal grandmother, chong chong and me.

    the little bit of red on grandma’s arm is both beautiful and auspicious.

    1. I’m looking forward to it as well. Those are the drapes in our living room. The chair and table are from Grandma Anna.
