Mother's portrait painting(B)

Mother is a hard worker and also very capable. After the liberation, she was elected as the women captain. she always bearing the heavy burden on her shoulders. her leading team is often the first one to complete the task and she is also the old model in people's commune era.

Mother worked all her life. in her sixties, she climbed the tree to pick Atriplex. even in seventies, she still pulling the cart. The year before death, I finally convinced her to town to live with us for some time, but she borrowed some tools from nowhere, build a small garden on the rubble.

Mother gave birth to 5 boys and 2 girls but due to poor living conditions, died of two. She loves us so much. she was in her early fifties when father died. At that time, many people urged her to remarry, but mother refused. she said ,this is unfavorable to the children. in this way, she keep the widow to thirty years. Three decades of trials and vicissitudes, mother use her weak shoulders propped up a piece of heaven for us. Today, we all got married, but she has already left us and even a portrait painting did not leave.

Mother went, was very serene. I try to finding some inspiration from the few remaining sketches and childish drawings in order to be able to complete the mother's portrait painting which should have finished earlier. However, no matter how hard i work, still can not find mother's charm, especially that pair of eyes, which ever gave me warmth, courage and strength.

Long time not return to home. today is a good day, so i came alone to the long-lost homeland, sitting next to an old tree on the cliff. Suddenly, my eyes bright, can not help but called out: "Mother - "a full wrinkled old lady with small feet came to my side, her eyes full of love, said:"hi, boy, miss your mother?"
