Mother and Child

Last week my sister sent a photo of her newest grandson. It was an extraordinary shot of an exhausted new mom resting with her baby. Even in her sleep it was clear how protective the mom is of her child and how much love the two already feel for each other. And, strongly present but not seen, is the devotion of a young man who saw the beauty in this moment and recorded it.

Mostly I don’t work from photos because I can’t come close to conveying whatever moves me about it. But I had to try anyway with this photo. I did not succeed in capturing the emotion yet, but I like the sketch anyway.
