My mother loved cardinals. They were often in her garden, and she marveled at their beauty. When a cardinal flies by me now, I can’t help but think of my mother, even though it has been almost 20 years since she passed away. 

For my project remainder/reminder, I invited other women to share memories and meaningful objects that they kept from their own mothers. With these items, I constructed a series of still-life portraits of their mothers and of the relationship that was shared between the two women.
