Our journey as mother and daughter - that is woman to woman and deep friendship, too - this relationship has marked us. We may not see these marks on our body in the way that the paint settled on our skin in pathways of movement, but our lives together - the hours we spend in laughter or the moments of quick sharing, the borrowing of clothing and the enjoyment of a meal, the lying in quiet and the pouring of our breathe, the lyrics of our banter and our deep conversations, and oh so much more, these are permanently on us.
Our souls and hearts and minds, though ever changing are ever changed and always carry the places that we've been in this mother/daughter, woman/woman and deep friendship relationship that we have. And so this art piece, it truly personifies the relationship I have with this daughter of mine.
I am excited to see it. And to see all the other pieces of art and creation that is the work of this talented artist who gave us the space to paint our connection in such a moving way.
I hope you will consider supporting this incredible artist and visiting this show.
