Artist's Description

this painting is about my sister who is sick with multiple sclerosis and taking care and doing everything to keep her husband alive, both were artists and musicians before their illnesses…it amazed me to see her pushing him in a wheelchair while using crutches and leg braces herself…i use items to symbolize how the heart still yearns to do the things they love but are now unable to do. the dolls represent the childhoods they never had. the ghost in the window is because my brother in law told me he sees dead people looking at him thru the window….the paint is mixed with my tears because i could not fight them throughtout the enitre painting….well…i changed the title because as of today december 6th, stephen has passed away, now i hope my sister can get thru this…….Before being dignosed with MS, she played guitar, was a gymnast, tennis player and singer…now she cannot use her fingers to play, can barely walk due to the MS, and her vocal chords are also being affected by the MS, she has been and will always be seen by me as a heroine who never gives up…I look at her and am amazed at her strength and courage……
