I went to a baby shower about a month ago and painted this as my present to the expecting mama. This is her first baby and I am thrilled for her. I wanted to give her something to mark this moment in her life. This brief moment of being an expecting mother, full of dreams and joy when all you can do is sit and wonder what comes next in this grand adventure called parenting.
I remember my first pregnancy and how each one after was just as miraculous to me. So, I am entitling this piece “THE GIFT” in honor of my friend.
I am especially excited because I did something different with creating a repetitive pattern instead of my normal background. Then I did a white wash over it before painting the figure of the mother and am very happy how this turned out. I am looking forward to seeing where this new inspiration may lead me.
