My Two Roses

         work in progress

This is a work in progress from an anticipated project, Without Thanks, inspired from actual events, explores my complex relationship between sisters once I discovered that, at the age of 6, my mother was really my aunt. Moreover, the work examines the sacrifices of the 21st Century Black woman, her resilience and strength and celebrates her unsung well-deserved status. I plan to use an encaustic surface to create a misty longing for what might have been.
