I have been working on this painting for months, almost a year. I started it when I was waiting for Thora to arrive and it has gone through a series of transformations. It has had many appearances and I have slowly been adding new layers and faces to it and now I am finally happy with it. At first it was bright pink and orange, then it was pink and black, it has been green and red-splattered and this is the final edition. It represents all the changes that have happened in the last year, but now it finally feels settled. I have called it The evolution of mum.
