The sick child

A much loved child in our family has from infancy suffered with illness and hospitalisation, it is every mothers nightmare.

On instagram, a mother shared a picture of her beautiful child in a deep sleep, ill in bed.

These intense moments , the quiet waiting , the love, the unquantifiable beauty of a child in their vulnerability is why I made this painting.
