Mette came into my life when I was four. She was named after our Danish great-grandmother. We are two sister that could not be more opposite no matter how hard we try. She’s very organized and I’m not. She’s traditional and I’m abstract. Through thick and thin, connected by fate, she is my girl. We might not always agree, but we do what good sisters do and that’s to love each other no matter what. I could have not have asked for a better sister. Sis, I cherish you with all of my heart.
Lyrics song Sisters from the movie White Christmas.
There were never such devoted sisters.
Never had to have a chaperon, no sir
I’m here to keep my eye on her
Every little thing that we are wearing.
When a certain gentleman arrives from Rome
She wore the dress and I stayed home
All kinds of weather
We stick together
The same in the rain or sun
Two different faces
But in tight places
We think and we act as one… uh-huh
Those who’ve seen us
Know that not a thing could come between us
Many men have tried to split us up but no one can
Lord help the mister
Who comes between me and my sister
And lord help the sister who comes between me and my man
Sister don’t come between me and my man
About this Collection
This is one of many small oil paintings in my series titled ‘Women’. They each represent family, friends and other women who bring inspiration in our daily lives. This project started out as a study for future color palettes for my larger paintings and emerged as little gems. At first when it came time to name each piece, I realized that each had their own personalities and reminded me of individuals that have touched my life in some way.
