Artwork Description

“As this family enjoys a walk along the beach in Del Mar, California,” says artist Steve Hanks, “a discussion with the younger daughter takes the full attention of her parents. This gives her older sister a chance to pursue her interests. I’ve heard it said that when you raise a boy you only have one boy to worry about, but when you raise a daughter you have all of them to worry about. To illustrate this in ‘Raising Daughters,’ the two girls and their mothers are the only females on the beach. I carried the story further by making the older daughter and the boy she is admiring into a couple in the far distant background, walking away.”
