"Firstborn", 11x14, oil

I painted this poignant scene about 6 years back in a smaller format and decided to have another go at it. Motherhood is one of the most wonderful, challenging, uplifting, frightening and rewarding experiences of womanhood. I am so happy to have experienced the joy and challenges in raising three sons. Once a mother, always a mother. The love and concern never stops until the day a mother breathes her last breath.

I hope that you like this painting.
