This is one of Emma's paintings in her new show at Stanford.  It was tucked in the corner but, needless to say, I loved it from the first second I laid eyes on it.

It is part of her exploration of family -- the ties that bind and the ones that pull us apart.

For me, this painting shows how a simple word like "Swaziland" that may have little meaning for our family now, most certainly will in a year or two.
