Our Child 4 – Waiting

Watercolor, 18 x 22 inches
Unframed and Unmatted, $90

It is December, 7 months now, and still the waiting continues.

This is one of a series of four portraits painted from May to June of 2018 when our government took babies and children from their immigrant parents and housed them in cages. The numbers have since risen to 12,000. I am horrified by this inhumanity. I have worked with children and families my whole life and know the impact of such acts on children, parents, and future generations. They wait. When will the lesson be learned?
