“An adaption from my previous paintings, mother in love stems from my experience of being in hospital with my first child. Because my waters broke early and I was expecting a child at 29 weeks(11 weeks early), I drew a drawing like this every week with a new number on it. Eg when I was 29 weeks I drew this picture on A4 paper with colours and drew the nomber 30 on it representing me seeing my baby growing big and strong inside me for the next week. I was reading a Wayne Dyer book at the time “real Magic”, and through visualising and believing I kept her in for another 6 weeks which was incredible at the time. The picture represents health, happiness and growth."
But there is much more to write about this piece…..
The symbology behind this painting is magnificent on a personal level.
It all began in the year 1999…..
To fully understand the story behind it, I have to say that when I was pregnant, the fear and tribulations that I experienced was huge.
The journey of pregnancy, created from nothing is nothing short of incredible, heart felt, emotive and of pure love and trust.
so, trust in the self knowing, the quiet, silent times when a thought is the seed for the future, able to grow strong enough on its own.
Nurture the strong, inner resilience that allows you to disregard what you need not, out of total acceptance of what is, and focus only on what you want to create.
