Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Pensive image in chalk pastel in subdued tones of blue, white, grey and brown depicting a young woman in the arms of a relative: a mother, an aunt or perhaps a grandmother in times past. It could also be a meeting of oneself in time: "If I could tell the younger me..."

The older woman giving support is tenderly laying her hand on the younger woman's heart (note the blue glow from her fingers); the other hand cups her hair and earring.
Both women are wearing blue teardrop earrings.
