Two Sisters

Two Sisters
by Cheryl White
Acrylic on Canvas 24" x 36"
This painting is based off the same pattern as Mary Did You Know that I had painted over  from the February 11th post but for this one I used fast long brush strokes and bold colors.  The older sister's (my) hair is also like a hand placed on her younger sister's (Char's) face.  This was inspired by my relationship with my younger sister Charlotte.  While painting this, I thought about all we had both been through together and this quote by Benjamin Disraeli.

Sweet is the voice of a sister in the season of sorrow. 
- Benjamin Disraeli
