Mother and Children Series 3
- Penguin 1
Mixed media on a canvas
24"x24", 2015. #3612
This series of Penguin paintings are about the gap between her dream and reality.
This was originally a series of two penguin paintings, but I decide to add additional details more recently (#3614).
I am using the same picture, but I decided to add more meaning abstractly to this painting.
When I painted this one, I was really busy raising two kids,
and I felt a lot of frustration at not having more time to spend on myself, including time to paint.
In this painting, the mother penguin really needs a relaxing vacation from the daily struggles of raising kids.
And meanwhile everybody in the background is enjoying their vacation.
