THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Nothing is more abundant and protective than the love a mother has for her children. At any cost, she will protect her little ones and put up a barrier against the world to shield them from life's hardships for as long as she can. The Cactuses painting seems to convey just how far a mother will go in her journey of love, showing the way one cactus wilts from the weight of the world as the mother continues to thrive in harsh conditions. Traditionally used for treating ailments, the cactus symbolizes as well the mother's nurturing capability.
