New Paintings for Mother's Day

"time out"

"up all night"

"I can't remember my life before you"

"float close"

"tiny sprout of mine"

"please sleep"

"not so fast"

"I miss you when you're asleep"


"my heart is full"

"you can do it"

"I love you so"

"little one"

Mother's Day is in 3 weeks and I just finished my annual collection of Mother's Day paintings. This was the second year that I've painted these and they were so much fun. It was really interesting to see what aspects of motherhood were coming through. "Time out" and "not so fast" are both timely considering that Sam is in the "terrible two's". But I still think of him as my baby and I do still miss him when he's sleeping.
