Family Paintings | Portland, Oregon

A girl and her aunt adventuring in Portland, Oregon. 

I was asked to paint a specific picture of the commissioner's sister and daughter, she wanted to capture the special relationship between the two of them when Auntie comes to visit in Portland. For me, this painting is about the bonds that develop between women within a family. There is nothing more important to me than the relationships I have with my mom, my aunties, my nieces and my own sisters.
