Watercolor Illustration in Mashpee, Cape Cod



Sibling Rivalry

The four year old likes to collect wild flowers and poses with her 2 year old brother.
Note the posture as she pushes him against the wall, arm around him and the flowers.
He literally “looks up” at her. And smiles a pained grin of submission, head cast back in adoration/resentment. How can he compete at half her size? Later he will be taller, shoulders wider and wise in the knowledge that power resides not in size but in spirit. By then, we’ll see not leader and minion, but 2 warriors side by side.
