The Tantrum
Painting by Jessica Gray Schipp

Grandma’s window The Tantrum I painted this a month after my Grandma passed away. It’s from an old photograph and shows her holding my sister while I have a tantrum off to the side. I felt alone without her. I was lost. She was the last living force of steady unconditional love in my life. The irony for me is that my sister is calm and peaceful, something she’s rarely been. The painted imagery is blurry, much like the way I felt. This is the first time I’d painted on glass; I salvaged the window when my apartment got remodeled. 24×21″ oil painting on glass windowpane Painting Oil + Found Object 2015
