Yoli's Army Of Three

In the days before Mrs. Chu settled down, she was a strong warrior specializing in the nimble handling of swords. It was therefore no surprise to those who knew 有力, that she would put down her blade and become a brave mother, raising her children with sharp wisdom. Her heart swelled with pride for her little army now playing by her side. They were her whole world and she had retrieved each one with the perseverance and patience worthy of heroic generals in battle. But, her three little soldiers had conquered her heart.

For my guardian, YoLi


  1. I am a terrible photographer but you photographed it beautifully! We are so in love, you just don't know. All the kids would identify themselves with the painting. I sent you a not via email, don't know if you got it. I cannot say thank you enough.

  2. Sister, you can not imagine the joy that I had working on it. It just evolved,and then there you all were!
    You know your name sounds Chinese and would mean HAS STRENGTH.
    and of course, you do.

    Yes got the email.

  3. Are those the characters for it? I love it! So much of me is in there. So much.

  4. What a fantastic painting - the story makes it so meaningful! I'm adding your blog to my list of artist blogs. Gorgeous.

  5. So delicated, so beautiful, I love your work.
    A big hug.

  6. Another remarkable painting! I was reading the comments and realized, Yoli's name does sound chinese! 有力 ... and it has a very nice meaning too, one that perfectly describes her :)

  7. I don't know how i miss this sweet post!
    Such delicate thoughts behind the painting ... and the encounter of two beautiful souls!
