All my paintings have stories but this one is very specific.
My mother passed away over twenty years ago. On my 21st birthday she had given me a pearl necklace. The clasp had broken so I took them to a jeweler to be restrung. They lost the pearls. They are very apologetic and offered to replace them.
We all have objects that connect us to our past or people in our past. I may get another set of pearls or another piece of jewelry but the tether is broken.
