Happy Mother's Day

Close up.
Oil on 7x5 archival canvas panel.
I hustled on this one so that I could post it today. I just wanted to dedicate a painting to honor all the Moms out there! What special people they are! I used to sing a song when I had my band that was entitled "Hall Of Fame For Mommas". It was performed by Glen Campbell years ago. The closing line was "the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world". The idea of it is so very true!
Happy Mother's Day!!

  3. Dean, This is beautiful! It made me cry! You captured so very well the emotion behind this. I am thinking of so many hugs I've shared with my mother as well as with my children...just like this one. Today I could only do it in my mind, but this picture brought it all together for me. Thank you for sharing this!
