In “Patience”, the brightly colored oil paints take on a life of their own. The mother and her unborn child are both dependent and independent — caught in a liminal world between joy and sorrow, consciousness and unconsciousness, life and death.

This painting is part of a new series of oil paintings that are helping me to process my own paradoxical feelings about motherhood, with its unbridled love, loss of freedom, and death of self.
