"Mother Love" (sold)


6"x6"
Oil on Gessoboard
This painting is inspired by my "step"daughter holding her new baby. To witness the interaction was so beautiful and such a privilege. Never having had children myself, I am grateful for the unexpected role of grandmother!

Simply amazing! You must paint a larger one of this painting. I love the light, composition ... everything about it. Stunning.

This is the first time I've seen your work. This painting is truly amazing. I agree with LSaeta on the whole thing. I'm definately following your work. And your western pieces are wonderful as well.

So beautiful....As a mother this brought tears to my eyes. Literally...My 9 and 5 year olds are escaping me and growing too fast, and you perfectly captured the tender touch of a mother....I am so sad it is sold! I would have snapped it up!
