Mother and Child

Elegance, beauty, and grace are found in the simple things we do in our daily lives. Portrayed through a mother and child, the composition tells us a story. The baby looking away manifests the safety, security, and trust implemented in the mother by the clutch of his small hand as she enables to feed herself, getting on with her daily chores. The inseparable connection between the two comes together in unison and harmony as one, created by strong contrast and movement.
