This is a painting that I was inspired to do after listening to the lyrics of Mama's Just A Little Girl. It tells the story of a 13 year old girl who became pregnant and was forced to raise twin boys by herself, it also tells of struggles to provide shelter, food and clothing for them. One brother got involved in selling drugs and was shot and killed. The mother holds the child as he dies as the brother watches and tells the story. He repeats throughout the song. " I don't blame you, because mama was just a little girl".
This paiinting is 30×40. and is oil. The painting is done in a flemish technique.
