From the Inside Flap
An extraordinarily beautiful keepsake book, To My Daughter, With Love
is a singular journal about the special relationship that exists between mothers and daughters. On these exquisitely designed pages a mother can record, as a gift for her daughter, precious memories, not only of their days together, but also of her own childhood. She can give her daughter a glimpse of the past events that shaped their lives. She can share with her daughter impressions of her own mother, observations about times past, reminiscences of her early years, of her accomplishments, her disappointments, her insight, her dreams.
Author/artist Donna Green believes that such memories represent the greatest gift a mother can give her daughter. "I wanted to create a mother-to-daughter journal for women of every age; a kind of diary I will keep for my daughter; a book I hope my mother will one day present to me."
Collectors of Donna Green's art will especially appreciate the fine reproductions of nearly twenty new oil-on-canvas works. These exceptional pieces typify the clarity, emotional range, richness of detail and sensitive use of color for which Donna Green has become so well know. The primarily narrative images are at once timeless and contemporary. In addition to the paintings, the artist has created delicate floral illustrations and sketches of cut-work lace especially for this book.
