“Ages and Stages”
Like a flower seed we are born with great potential. In childhood opportunities begin to bloom. In full blossom we realize our goals. And as we mature we share our wisdom with future generations. This painting represents the fours ages and stages of our lives.
In experiencing the cycle of life, we find that each stage has its own beauty. As we grow there is an inherent wisdom that comes from the knowledge we gather. It prepares us to share our strengths with those who follow in our footsteps. The child, the youth, the adult, and the elder – each makes a contribution to our social fabric in its own way. This painting was inspired by the many initiatives in support of women and their families in all stages of our lives – child care programs, improved resources for education, equal opportunities and pay for women, and respect for our elders.
