Of her series Bittersweet on Bostwick Lane, Susan Worsham says, “This work holds the stain of my story in it’s weave, threading both pain and loss with the sweetness of childhood memories. My oldest neighbor Margaret Daniel, who was the last person to see my brother alive, often tells the story of taking the children to the persimmon tree, where she said my brother always had a ring of persimmon stained around his mouth. I often use the mouth as metaphor with titles such as Blood Stained Mouth, Cake Mouth, and here, Plum Mouth."
