Mother Comforted by Child

Another recent pencil drawing that might become an etching. I've been struck in the past by scenes of upset parents consoled by children (including me by mine) in various places, and done sketches. I was surprised as this one from imagination started to take shape with such a dark Kollwitzian vibe, but then the child seemed to be channeling a more cheerful Cassatt energy, so we have a yinyang dialectic thing going on. I don't know what the water signifies.

Pencil drawing of sad-looking mother, immersed in waist-high water, holding child as he reaches up to touch her face.
