The title I have settled on is “All her cares”. In this case I was thinking about the woman/friend who was the inspiration for the painting. She is experiencing a trial that affect her so deeply as a mother and as a woman.

It reminded me of a song by 10,000 Maniacs called “Trouble Me”. There is a line that says “Trouble me with all your cares and your worries”. I believe it is in the nature of most women to take on the burdens of others, to want to share the load, and yet once in a while something comes their way that has no obvious solution. No matter how they look at the situation it appears impossible to manage. That is where this woman is, with “all her cares”.
