This is 40.

A good friend of mine recently commissioned these two little gems to commemorate turning 40. She sent one to her best friend on her 40th birthday and the other remains with her. While they are beautiful on their own, they aren't complete unless they are put together - just like the two friends. I listen to the Indigo Girls on repeat while painting which seemed appropriate. I liked the lyric - "your heart the red sun, my heart the moon clouded"  It translated itself into my color palette
