George Ellsworth, Brianna.
about the piece.
Even though I have three photographs of George after he was born and died, the ones I keep going back to look at when I want to see him are the ultrasound images. I think it is because when I look at those images I remember that once upon a time he was alive and healthy. I just wish I had more of them, which is why I decided to paint my own version of my favorite of those ultrasound images. He looks so much like his father in this one that when I look at it I can imagine what he would have looked like as a little boy.--Brianna
