I love this series because the paintings derive from some of my favorite photos of my baby girl, now 13 years old going on 40.  It is also very special to me as it encompasses three generations:  my mom took the photos of my daughter of which I painted.  At this point, she would not be caught dead wearing a dress or with her hair down.  However, her spirit will never be outgrown.  Her wisdom, compassion, kindness, and thoughtful spirit are always present in her eyes and smile.  She is my baby girl and always will be.

I’ll Let You Go
Jessica Allossery

The day has come, to let you go
Only happiness, I will show
I'll always be here for you, you know
Nothing takes away my love and it shows

You've grown up now, things have changed
Grew some wings now, you're flying away
I'll always be here for you, you know
Nothing takes away my love and it shows
Yeah nothing takes away my love
When I let you go

You're my baby
Always will be I hope you know
My love stays when you go


Some years down, the long, long road
If you need help with your load
I'll always be here for you, you know
Nothing takes away my love and it shows
Yeah nothing takes away my love
When I let you go

Cos You're my baby Always will be
I hope you know
My love stays when you go
