Fleeting



Fleeting
is the theme this week at Illustration Friday. Thought I'd put a toe back into those waters. It's been a busy and difficult winter. Fortunately time is fleeting for both the good times and the bad (although the tough times sure feel longer don't they?)

The woman holding the little girl in the this picture was actually pregnant at the time, and now both her children are past the toddler phase. Talk about fleeting! This painting is currently hanging in the biggest one-person show I have ever had: 50 paintings! Not quite a retrospective, but something approaching it, for my Genre of Inclusion project. If you want more info on the show, which is up thru the 22 of April, click here.

I'm so glad your toes are in these waters again! The show is a great idea. I love it.

You've captured the posture of this pregnant woman to a tee. Just the way her hand is poised on her hip you can tell the strain of her back. It's tender and fabulous!

GREAT painting! And we are on the same wavelength with our sweet children's fleeting youth. Thanks for visiting my blog! Scary thing is, I have an 11 yr. old and a 14 yr. old who are taking notes!

Julia Kelly said...

Beautiful and the same thing I thought was the most fleeting- our babies!!

Congrats on the show. thank you for your kind comments. BTW I love your thick, chunky paint handling, it's very confident and deliberate-still working on that myself.
