Family by Padmaja

Acrylic on Card board sized 12'' by 14 ''

I have tried a modern expressionistic way to say what I feel about a family here. For me, a family is being together all the time in ups and downs of our lives, being able to express with out fear what we feel towards each other for good or bad and loving one another for what we are. I used four different hands of a family of four to show the strength, love and bonding that is shared. I remember this quote at this time, "What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories." ~George Eliot
