(just a note this piece is not for sale nor will it be for a long time so I'm just putting a piece of my personal art up here - not advertising) I feel wierd about using this forum because most of my work is for sale so posting it would be in some way advertising, so, likely not within the bounds of appropriate. I usually post art stuff for discussion at forums like wetcanvas.com where it's not in that grey area of acceptable.

Anyways...

Here's the piece I've been trying to get onto canvas for some time. I've had it in my head for a year but just started on it recently. I'm due any day now with this baby and don't know if I'll finish before the birth, but wanted to share since this is a piece of me really - it's not so much for my patrons, collectors, etc., it's for me:

linky

(ETA: See post #17 for update)

WOW! Beautiful and so full of feeling. I haven't painted in years but an 7 mos pregnant and I think you just inspired me!

I love your family portraits, too.
