Oil on 7x5 archival canvas panel. The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world. I was searching or a new approach for this painting. First I intended to keep it soft in order to express the tender mood...I wanted the color to be invented instead of being enslaved by the actual colors...I wanted the shadow areas to meld together. Much of it is done in thinned washes. Notice the cross behind the mother's head?
