This painting is a tribute to my older sister and mother, who have protected me throughout my years. I always knew that my sister had my back when I was growing up, and any sorrows in my life my mother is the first one I reach out to. I now see the same dynamic with my two daughters, how they protect and look out for each other. When one is hurt, the other is hurt right along with her. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished beige edges. It comes ready to hang.
