I painted this while stories of migrant children being separated from parents at the border populated the news. I am aware news can be manipulated, things might not be as horrific as presented, but as a mother myself, I am crying and hurting for those parents and children (in fact for any parents and children who get separated). I painted my own child in a bleak world peeking into a colourful reflection. The dark world those children are in, next to the world they can only glance at on TV. Lately I keep realizing how much privilege I have compared to most of the world.
