A Hug from Mom

I love watching stories unfold as kids paint. One fellow educator described it as the marks on the page grounding the story. Here is a simple story really, and the telling came at the end but I love how the process mirrors the narrative.
The artist begins by painting herself within an enclosure.
She adds another figure, using overlap to show this person is behind and around her and then fills in the background.
"It's me and I'm going out to play and my mom is giving me a hug good bye."
