I painted this portrait as a gift for one of my best friends....it is of her two beautiful daughters. The girl in the blue dress has a brain tumour...at only 19! It is so unfair! Like my daughter, she will leave this life too early. My heart aches for her and her family.
I decided to make it bright and fun so made a collage around them of their favourite music.

Terri, what a terribly sad story.  I will never understand how such things can happen to beautiful young souls!  You are really getting better.  I think this is your best thus far!!
