"They Made it Work..."

This is the piece that I am submitting to the "Artists Who Teach" exhibit here at a local gallery entitled "They Made it Work." It represents the lives of two people coming together in marriage and facing uncertainty during their early years. In my mind, the story of these two people has a happy ending, although they had to endure immigration, poverty, and prejudice along the way. It is a celebration of the perserverance of our ancestors.
