I love meeting so many amazing pregnant mamas through the years! This week I had an appointment with this lovely Colorado native who told me a story about how there was snow falling when her husband proposed to her, as well as the the first snow of the year on their wedding. There was even snow at the birth of her first child!
A tree of life had been requested to celebrate this pregnancy and after showing her many ways this could take shape, she felt it was best represented by two trees bending together. Roots flowing down was also part of the request, and I love to show this aspect of trees, above and below.
And flowers ... because ... flowers are beautiful! My art does not have to be realistic and I'm grateful for that liberty.
A full moon shines at the top of the tree because this dear baby is due soon, and the full moon is on Friday! I've been loving watching it get bigger in the cold night sky.
As I rested my hand against this belly to paint I felt the little one inside me push against me and such a sweet way, it's like being touched by an angel.
I give thanks that this is my work in the world!
