Orphaned Brotherhood

16"x20" acrylic over canvas

This is a
piece I did that was inspired by a photograph of two South-African boys with their mother before she died of Aids. Their father had died six months before the photograph was taken. This is my portrayal (using artistic license) of the boys, now a little older, going to visit the graves of their parents. The older brother holds the hand of his younger brother, who is carrying the photograph (not pictured).
