My mom is an artist.

Actually both my parents are artists.  And yesterday Dad sent me some artwork by my mom, including this:


There are portraits of each family member in charcoal.  They're not photographic likenesses, they're better than that.  Thanks very much, Mom.  

And PS I'm reading a letter on the podcast this weekend, to my mother on the subject of politics.   Watch this space.
