Giving Wings


A Mother’s job is to give “Roots and Wings” to their children.


Symbolism: The Mother is watching her child fly high into the sky, ready to catch the child if need be. For a Mother to give her child “Wings”, it means to give the gift of learning to be independent and self-confident.


Childress: “I was painting this around the Fourth of July and the fireworks carried over into this painting.”
