Mixed Media Artist

Love At First Sight

This is a 6″x8″ mixed media painting on wood. The sides are 1.5″ deep and are painted red.
This painting is available HERE.

Ahhh, love at first sight.
I remember my first sight of my baby girls. It was instant love. I look at them now and I wish I could just make them small like that for one more instant. Just to hold them against me again when they were that small.
So instead, I grab them, wiggling and pulling, laughing and whining
‘Mamma, let go!’
and I hold them and kiss them for as long as they will allow.

I love them even more now,
at every sight.

    Maria – this one really hit home for me. Besides the painting being so awesome, your note made me think about how I still just want to hug and kiss my four girls and my baby is 37 years old. My Mom had a saying “Once a Mom always a Mom” – you heart never stops loving. Anne

    • You are awesome, Anne. And boy, you are a great Mom, Nanny and, dare I say, adopted Mom and Nanny Anne (that is what my girl’s call you)! Wink, wink!
