I completed this piece yesterday. I'm very pleased with it. It takes me back to my childhood when I relied on my strong mother, well, for everything. My mother worked two jobs and raised my sister and I as a single mother. My parents got divorced when I was 4. I didn't have the easiest childhood, but I didn't have the hardest, either. We had enough to eat and wear. We were safe and warm. This painting speaks of these essential things that every child should have.
A child's mother can be like God, angel, warrior, psychologist, protector, provider, story teller, disciplinarian, teacher, or best friend. The strong mother stands out, she shines. The courageous mother shines and glows just like this painting.
Remember your mother for all she did and does. Where would you be without her?
