From Wikipedia: A monolith is a geological feature, consisting of a single piece of rock placed as, or within, a monument. Erosion usually exposes the geological formations, which are most often made of very hard and solid metamorphic or igneous rock.
This painting is the first in a series of three. Three is a magic number for me in my paintings, one that surfaces again and again. I think it stands for my children. The love I have inside me is massive and unchanging, much like a monolith. I don't think there's anything that can describe the love a mother has for her children, though I try every day to put it into words for them just so they can begin to know. I think God's biggest gift to me has been showing me the love that can grow in my heart when I became a mother and how it continues to multiply exponentially.
Will post pics of the others in this series soon. These are available for purchase and will hang at Starbuck's in the West Village in January.
