This painting shows that we are so much stronger, smarter, and braver than we believe ourselves to be. Too often we agonize ourselves into a panic to find that yes, the stove is off, the exam was aced, the children are safe. Here, she sleeps, secure in the knowledge that a part of her is ever watchful, ever vigilant.
