This portrait is most especially for Michelle Tarrant Williams, a tribute the loss of her son Sawyer Erik Williams. However it is also for all the women who have lost a child or miscarried a baby. During October, we remember all babies born sleeping, or whom we have carried but never met, those we have held but could not take home, or the ones that came home but didn't stay.
The virgin heard these words from
her innocent child: "Mother, behold your son."
The virgin saw her son saying: "It is finished,"
and thus the sword pierced her soul.
-Stabat iuxta Christi crucem
A blog on art, roller derby and life.
I'm an artist and mother of two in Courtenay, BC. I've completed a project called the "Madonna and Child Project," and I'm now working on a series of roller derby inspired drawings. In my spare time I play roller derby with the Brick House Betties.
