This piece depicts two female figures within a symbolic womb. Their bodies are curving, flowing, and stretching along with the folds surrounding them. They shield themselves. Their faces cannot be seen. The only eyes we see gaze out from her belly. This is one of those paintings that wasn't planned through, but just needed to be painted. It was started and completed over a couple days of intense, continuous creation.
