This picture was done during the process of my Granmother's passing. She was really a lovely women no one could have been better to us than our family and our Maw maw. I only wish that some day I will do a good portrate of her. Yet my fans the woman in the Picture is my mother. I did this portrait for her christmas gift. Thus I thought to add the two together. Bellum is holding her mother letting her know she is loved and protected. Bellum represents me. The blood is time ever flowing and steady, taking life and giving life, and healing broken hearts. My mother is young in this picture she was 2O I think. She has not a look of sarrow but of care free love and unconditional love and inncoents. Because I belive that Maw maw is well and fine in heaven. I know she is still here. So I gave my mom a happy expression to show her true beauty and nature and make her act like she knows all is okay.
