"Send in the Clowns"
There was no poem or prayer that accompanied this painting but I painted it after a very challenging season and for me it just meant I'm done, send in the clowns, I've got nothing left and I need some comic relief. I know it's from a song in a play (that I've never seen) but the title just jumped in my spirit while I was painting her. She is sad, but there is still joy in the midst of the grief. I included the bird to help her find her joy...my friend calls birds creations' little praise machines.
The original has sold but another can be painted to your specifications. Prints are available in my Etsy Store.
