So the summer came and went, and school starts tomorrow. I am excited to meet all the new kids...many have stopped by already for a hug and a chat. Can't beat that. But I did complete a couple of pieces amidst the hectic summer comings and goings.
The first one is called "La Cena", or The Dinner, drawn from a photo I took years ago in Lombok (an island in Indonesia). This little girl was sent alone to fetch the fish for the family dinner. Such a simple life. I always wondered where she got that big, lacy shirt...maybe from a tourist? It was meant for her.
The next one is titled "Manos con Anillo", or Hands with Ring. The age of the person shows a long life, and the Claddaugh ring symbolizes that life filled with friendship, loyalty and love. I went to Ireland a couple of years ago researching my heritage, and found it. There will be more to come on the Irish theme!
