5/14/10: My Guardian Angel

When I started this painting, I was just pushing the paint around and this image appeared of a woman and child. It represents Arlene, the mom of my lifelong childhood friend, who I refer to as my second mom. She was my guardian angel while growing up on Helenbrook. She took me under her wing, treated me as part of the family and gave me a safe haven. I am grateful for her.
