What is family? Traditionally defined as people we’re related to by birth or adoption, family can also be represented by those we surround ourselves with: those who accept us for who we are, provide comfort to us and love us unconditionally. This includes our friends and relatives, our animal companions and our community.
These three portraits were painted on a roll of paper 48”wide one by one and represent different stages of life. I could see only one painting at a time when I was working and only reveled to me when I unrolled the paper outside. The video that helps further understand these 2 portraits is called Temporary Structure is available on Instagram and my website.
Our vocations and avocations give purpose and meaning to our lives. What we must do or choose to do is an important way we define ourselves—and how we are seen by others.
