After the recent time mag. cover I have thinking a lot about breast feeding poses. And the huge lack of them in fine art. There is special emphasis of mother-and-child poses throughout western culture, mostly religious examples. But none are breast feeding. There are very very few paintings or sculptures of actual breast feeding.
When I imagine mother and child, I think of calm, tender, playful, having fun... and breast feeding. I feel inspired to paint a breast feeding scene - older child, younger child, tandum, whatever, in a typical pose and enviornment. Not the time magazine "dare me" stare. I paint in a more classical style, but a modern, 2012 scene.
Too bad I thought of this now, when my kids are 5 and 7 and no longer breast feeding. If you have any pictures, which you would be happy to be used for a painting, please email me the link or send me a private email. If I paint it, I would of course give you credit, name.... and/or a quality print of the painting, let me know what you want. You can see how I paint here: www.abrosenlund.com. See the first few paintings - the boy in the towel is my son, and see the dog in the abandoned home... I would paint it in this style.
That said, good luck with your effort.
sorry cant be of any help. dont have pictures myself.
however i wanted to say how much i enjoyed your work. esp. the A4 paper. that was brilliant. simple stuff.
heck. i'd love you to paint us. if i had any :(
There are lots of breastfeeding paintings, (see http://www.art-breastfeeding.com/) but I think it's great that you'd like to take on this project. My kids are big now and I don't have photos to share, but wish you luck!
