Kamryn: Artist Statement
I made this in honor of my mother. Half of this painting represents the light of day flowing into the other half that is night. The stars represent my mom, especially the big one, which shines in her memory. Her nickname was “Star” because she always loved to look up at the stars. She even had a tattoo of stars on her arm with my initials. She also loved rainbows and now they remind me of her. The daylight part of this painting honors happy memories of spending days hanging out with her and playing outside with my sister; the nighttime is when I especially miss and remember her.
