Working on this painting touched me both on a spiritual level as well as on an emotional one, and there are so many things I'd like to say about it - but I'll let the image speak for me this time.
I dedicate this to all mothers, to all those warrior and nurturing spirits out there standing up for what they believe in.

I love this so much. I shared it with a 'Mama's Comfort Camp' online support group and everyone had so many great feels about this. It speaks so much to my own struggles and spirit. Thank you for representing motherhood this way.

Aw, this is very special! It shows the both side of her being gentle and nurturing, while, at the same time, she can be powerful and robust in order to protect her kid. The fact there are sharp and swirl patterns around her signaling that she has been through a lot of pain and even sacrificed a lot of blood, which in the end made her more empathic and complete. With the moon behind her, it reveals the woman's unique and sacred talent, her inner intuition and silentness, guiding her and her kid through the tested time. Well, something like that. :) Elegant work!

My husband stumbled on this and showed it to me. I love your art style so much, and this is a great picture. Definitely keep up the good work.
Also, if you don't mind saying, are you a member of ADF, because I am and you use some of the same imagery and terminology. Just wondering.
