MondayArtday "self portrait 8 yrs old"

Below is a painting I did for MondayArtday's theme
" Self Portrait of myself at Eight":

This painting is part of " The little Girl Series " They were started when my mother just passed. When someone you love very deeply is gone, there will always be an emptiness inside you. I felt very very empty and sad when my mom died and very, very alone. My mother always told me that I will always be her little girl. These paintings are a tribute to that period of my time with her as a child.
