Artist's Description

At first glance a young man concluded this painting was about a mother forgiving her young prodigal daughter. I didn’t correct him.

This painting shows an older woman embracing her younger self and offering forgiveness for past mistakes and failings. The young self kneels before the older woman and asks for nothing other than a place to lay her head. The older woman who has grown physically and spiritually knows the younger self was caught up in the spring of youth and needs what we all need, a place to rest our transgressions. In the lap of experience the young one is allowed to rest.

I look at this painting with high hopes of self forgiveness.
