|watercolor on paper 8 x10|
Happy Mother's Day everyone:) There is nothing like a mother's love, so last week when I saw that the DPW challenge was to paint a self portrait, I jumped at the chance. The picture that jumped into my mind is a photo my husband took of myself and my oldest son, when he was about 2. Brian captured the perfect picture in my opinion and I knew I would paint it some day. Yes, this is a watercolor. I love to paint portraits in black and white because I happen to enjoy black and white portraits. Most photos and portraits I have in my home are in black and white and this one will join the others. I'm titling this one "A Mother's Love". I just love my son's face, he is just so beautiful, sorry handsome (he gets mad when I call him beautiful). His face is just so full of hope and wonder and love. I could look at his little face all day. And I think every mother wants the world for their children and I feel that this emotion comes through in this piece.
See you next week and Happy Mother's Day:)
