This piece was inspired by a much smaller, unintended practice drawing (second image, 12x9 on paper) where the imagery manifested itself out of the overlapping layers of color pencil from a subconscious place.
Titled "Mother", appropriately, this piece is reminiscent of our beginnings. Our ancient ancestry, our ghosts, going back to the original Mother of our specific Haplogroup. Generational DNA or loop; curses, memories - not always of my own, epigenetic curiosity, and the meaning or "why" of me. Somewhat a wistful painting in my personal desire to better understand my "me" through the people of my lineage who lived and died before me.
