From the artist:
The image is based on an acrylic painting created in 1994, shortly before our daughter was born. I digitally reworked the image in 2020. Both of the years had something in common. There were major years of transition. In 1994 Keira came into our life. She moved out of our house at the end of 2019. The pandemic year was the first year living without her. Unlike what I expected, it eased our life enormously. We had been caring for her for a number of years. It had been an anxious and stressful time. In 2020 the circle got complete and we could for the first time focus on our life. I have got a sense of achieving some wholeness within me, angry and frustrated parts could get absorbed and a gentle and caring part centres now in my middle.
