I don’t usually draw from photos but could not resist a photo my sister sent of her new grandson. I was struck by how the child’s hands communicated his vulnerability and the adult’s hands communicated an unspoken pledge of love and care. Additionally, the way the child was lifted up high for all to see shows the joy his arrival brought his family. My holiday wish for all of us is to be in relationships such as this one, relationships of love, care, growth, protection, joy and splendid times.
I drew in pencil and ink and then added watercolor.
Happy Holidays and Best Wishes to All!
