My mother, Aurita, gave birth to 20 children, and although 13 of us survived to lead full and rich lives, we scattered like the wind and took up residence in various geographic locations. Like most mothers, she dreamed of the day when she might see all of her children in one place at one time. I created Dreams in honor of my mother’s memory. It depicts her 13 living children in ascending order by age. As the youngest son, I am the bookend on the left next to my sister, Patricia, who is actually two years younger than I. This piece was created as an edition of 20 in order to recognize all 20 of my mother’s sons and daughters--present and departed. “You see, Mom, dreams do come true.”
