Painting picked for USA tour

December 1, 2014

Mother Care is one of the 60 paintings to be selected for the USA Birds in Art tour to the following museums:

  • Museum of the Gulf Coast, Port Arthur, Texas
    (December 5, 2014 – February 15, 2015);

  • Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Tucson
    (April 4 – May 24, 2015);

  • The Wildling Museum, Solvang, California
    (June 13 – August 10, 2015);

  • Newington-Cropsey Foundation, Hastings-on-Hudson, New York (September 1 – October 23, 2015);

  • Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa, Oklahoma
    (November 22, 2015 – February 7, 2016)

“The best part about this tour for me is that the painting is going to Oklahoma,” says Tanya. “When I painted this I was listening to the audio book of ‘The Grapes of Wrath’, a sad story about a family from Oklahoma. In the end the family gets caught in a flood and the baby dies. At this point I started to cry as the same thing happened to this little Moorhen family from Bradford-on-Avon. The day after I saw this happy little scene they got washed away in one of the floods - so it’s a very sad painting,” she concludes.
