MondayArtday "self portrait 8 yrs old"

Below is a painting I did for MondayArtday's theme
" Self Portrait of myself at Eight":

This painting is part of " The little Girl Series " They were started when my mother just passed. When someone you love very deeply is gone, there will always be an emptiness inside you. I felt very very empty and sad when my mom died and very, very alone. My mother always told me that I will always be her little girl. These paintings are a tribute to that period of my time with her as a child.

I haven't started this blog prompt yet, but your story touched my heart. this is so sweet, and it's beautifully done. And the colors are amazing!
I lost my Mother last September, and I certainly can relate to that empty feeling. I tend to think back often of the happy times I had with my parents at that age. This is a very touching piece!
