farm woman and daughter

farm woman and daughter

This is a section at the top center of the 24 x 29 foot mural, depicting a colonial period woman tending the fields with her daughter. Hallowell was a major international shipping port on the Kennebec River, so at any given time a good half of all the boys and men in the town were off at sea. This, of course, mean that the women tended to everything to maintain and build a community. This is why I have place this pregnant woman and her daugher prominently at the top of the mural.

Painting is a joy, and, of course, my day to day work, but has also been a refuge.
