Holding your baby for the first time is a feeling that no one can accurately put into words. Love, bonding, intensity, connection, maternal instinct all fall short of what it really feels like. ‘Cherish’ is the closest word that I could come up with to describe that feeling.
I painted ‘Cherish’ while awaiting our sixth child and this helped me envision the glory that was to come at the end of a difficult pregnancy. I love how this piece came out in a short amount of time. It was really a very organic creation.
