Sarah Manila | MamaAcrylic on canvas
24" x 36"
It takes a village to raise a child. It takes a group of supportive women to raise a mother. This piece is dedicated to all mothers who are too often misunderstood and under appreciated. Being a "mama" is, in truth, the most important duty you could ever have in your lifetime.
