"Joined Together" 36x28


“Joined Together,” 36x28, acrylic on canvas, 2023

“Joined Together” reflects the immense gratitude and peace I felt following my oldest son’s recovery from a life-threatening disease. This work was created during his long recovery process. I patiently added layer on top of layer, painting on days I felt hopeful and thankful. As a mother, I am forever joined together with my children’s experiences and feelings.
