"A Mother's Love" ...I like to work with live models but capture them in natural actions.  This keeps the painting from becoming too predictable and ponderous.

 

The original sketch for this painting was done of Janna holding the small daughter of a friend of ours during a church service.  It was the Christmas season, and I was reflecting on Motherhood.  I wanted to try to capture the humanness and tenderness of the Madonna and child.
