"Lonely and Missing You"
On this night I asked my Mom what she was thinking of for our art project. Here is how the conversation went.
Me: "Have you thought of an art topic for tonight?"
Mom: "Hmmmm, maybe lonely, or missing you."
Me: "I can paint that."
"And what would you like to say about that?"
Mom (giggling, because she isn't usually this direct): "I don't want to say I HATE it..maybe dislike, no...wish it were different." "I don't like you living so far away."
I decided to paint these little dots that represented me and my Mom. Sitting in dots about the size of our two states, on a world that showed only us. Tonight is the night before my Dad gets a sudden heart procedure, nothing like two big things making me wish I was in RI right now.
