  1. I love these paintings!! It's hard to choose a favourite because so many of them are so beautiful. There is something amazing about watching a mother with her baby - the tenderness and love in her face and eyes. These artists have done well to capture those looks.

    1. I couldn't agree more :)) - it would be interesting to know there relationship between the woman and the child to find out if it was her own child as they all look very tender.

  3. So beautiful. Now that my children are getting older, it seems children are more precious to me now.

    1. Mine are all grown up and no longer want hugs and cuddles which is a bit sad :( time flies and before you know it, those baby years have vanished all too quickly.
