My mother phoned me one morning and said she had a dream with a great T-shirt design in it..???!!
ok mom.....I said (and thought What next!)
And she went on describing.
OK I need to explain. For 22 years my mother and I lived in different parts of the world, and away from the rest of the family.
They reside here on Stord in Norway.
We are both of an adventurous nature, so after I passed 18 we saw little of each other for more than 25 years (stayed in contact most of the time).
For the last 19 month though, we have rented houses 100 meter apart from each other, and of course this has been incredibly nice (especially for my son Ivan 16, whom have had little chance to get to know his granny before this).
But in a month I am moving to Denmark (if I can work out everything in time....if not a little later :-), and this situation has us paying a lot more attention to each other than usual, thees days.
Also as I have been working on this design, she has been coming by a few times to see how it turned out (she usually don't have an awful lot of interest for design... not more than anyone else I would presume).
And the other morning she gave the design her "go ahead" :-)
So this is it, first collaboration piece of art made by my mom and me ( her first one ever...!!!)
P.S. The other day she told me she wanted a sawing machine, but couldn't afford one on her pension, so I have decided to save the money this tee brings in, and buy her one.
P.S. She won't be alone when I go to Denmark. I have two married brothers with five kids among them also living here. And also both my kids will be around.
