    I feel this resonates with myself & my son’s relationship also, well done Cara !!

  • Karen Camilleri, thank you for your comment for your feedback it means much to me to know that my artwork which is who I am connects with others, touches others, means something, that there is a connection and what that is…

    C, you are always in my heart…me your mom

  • C, you said to me once that I see what I want to see and you are right because I see hearts everywhere—I see the shape of the heart, the symbolic meaning of the heart, the soul, the meaning of what that is to me and I hope what it is to you everywhere I love you, mom
