I am a mom to two little girls in elementary school. Elizabeth Stone is quoted “Making the decision to have a child - it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ”
Last March, my girls' elementary school had a lock down drill. They learned what to do if monsters come. The imagery of this is unbearable. When things seem unbearable, I usually hide and paint.
In this image you see a mom carrying a baby. The baby is bundled up and secured with the caregiver. Three kids are ahead of her. All of them are walking towards the Capitol Building. The kids are hopeful. The mom is behind them. She is still able to guard them but not as joyful. She protects the kids, but the kids are the ones that leads her.
Original was painted in watercolor. (11.7"X15.5")
