Modern Mother and Child
" Modern Mother and Child "
Oil on Canvas
"I am at the age where life gets a little more confusing. Some of the people I know are getting married, some with kids, and some like me. Modern mother and child is a piece of amusement and understanding. I painted this for those who are deviant from our culture, for those who are focusing on their careers, and living their lives the way they wish. This piece also is a reminder that we all have different phases in life, you are never late nor wrong, you are just in time. "
