My Brother and I

My Brother and I is a painting depicting two children playing on the way home from school.  The older brother is holding the hand and securing the protection of the smaller brother.  This is typical of Jamaican children heading home from school on a daily basis.

The painting brings a sense of freedom to the viewer, the carefree joy that comes with being a child.  My brother and I – this story is common and it may bring you back to your days playing and caring for a smaller sibling.
