Pure Bliss



Taking in as much sunshine as I can get today I began to sketch out the shape of a tree. I started with a "U" shape for the branches and what formed in my mind was a mother holding a baby resting on the branches. We see kids and teenagers climbing trees all the time but what you do not see are mothers climbing trees with their infants (probably because it is dangerous). However I looked beyond that point, to where it was no longer dangerous... to where a mother and babe could rest within the comfort of the branches and enjoy each others company. I wanted it to portray a lackadaisical day in the life of a mother and babe and this was the image that came to the forefront.
Becoming a mother for the first time was a dream "come true" for me. Pure bliss every morning I woke up carrying the child in the womb and pure bliss once I first set eyes upon my newborn son. The time that we were blessed with together will never be forgotten in my heart to be cherished forever.
In this painting I wanted to capture the peace, contentment and pure joy involved in sharing a moment like this with your child. Pure Bliss for sure.

Happy Creating everyone.

FABULOUS!! What a beautiful greeting card this would make. I looked down at my newborn grandson's face 3 weeks again, in the hospital, and saw my son from 38 years ago and had that same bliss all over again.

Beautiful and very meaningful. I've always loved symbolic things, like those you'd see on tarrot cards. The bright colors in this case is really a plus, and it creates the whole fairy tale feel!

This is really pretty - and it has no words! I love the idea of sitting in a tree with a baby. It sounds like something my daughter would do if a tree were big enough when her babies were little.
