Cherokee Rose, In Memory Of

In Loving Memory
Today, a life long friend passed away. She lived across the highway from us for as many years as I can remember and when we were young, she would babysit. Lorena was also the model for this painting done in 2006. I so wanted to capture the gentleness of her spirit along with the visionary look in her eyes. Her eyes held a hint of sadness or maybe it was a yearning. My heart weeps.
