Title: Brothers, 30 X 26” – Charcoal on paper
“Brothers” is a picture of both love and struggle as the younger brother is mediating between tears and laughter in the rough embrace of his older sibling. This drawing was commissioned for a juried show exploring the theme of community. I chose to meditate on the struggles, rather than the joys, of living in community. Living in community can be difficult and painful, but in the end it is worth the risk.
