Day 3- 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
"A Mother's Love"
Wow, this is getting harder and harder to get the painting done by the deadline. I'm going to try to start another one today, so that I can be ahead of the game. This was a pleasure to paint, since I had the design sketch done from a year ago, and had always really liked the design of the piece. I am trying to limit the shapes in my paintings, and this one accomplishes that, I think. As I was painting it, I thought how much it reminded me of my 2 grandsons, so I had to add Brady's favorite stuffed animal, "Giraffey". By the way, being a grandparent is my favorite thing EVER!!!! Tomorrow, I'll paint a painting of my 2 granddaughters!
This painting is size 10.5" x 10.5" and is available for $125 plus shipping.
