I painted this piece for a local mom who wanted to capture a moment of empathy between her children: as her son went off to his first day of preschool, he held his younger sister's hand, knowing she was sad to send him off. I especially loved the gesture of their hands, and the way I could see their shadows "holding hands," too.
