A portrait of Verna Daae
Original painting - 12 x 16 x 1.5" canvas, painted with Tim Hortons Coffee.
“I expect Ray will invite them in.”
I can picture her peering out the window at the farm. The unsung hero behind the famous hospitality of the Ray Daae family. One day she and her grandson put their heads together and concluded that over the years, she’d probably made enough chocolate cake to span over 1.3 km - if you placed the pans end to end.
Women like her are the real architects of society.
“We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.” - Kavita Ramdas
