This was my first official bronze that is NOT wildlife! I was so 'in love` with being a new mom that
I always wanted to convey how it felt when I held my new baby close. Knowing for years that I wanted
to tackle this piece, I found myself 'stalking' pregnant women in the grocery stores...wondering how
open they would be to posing topless with their new baby. In a timely manner, my niece announced
some exciting news and agreed to pose after the baby was born. Although this is not a portrait of anyone in particular, it does represent the 'Bond for Life' that
can only come with motherhood.
I unpacked your beautiful sculpture last night. I had the same reaction as the first time that I saw it -- I cried. I have NEVER had such an emotion attachment to artwork. You truly captured the bond of motherhood. I will cherish this sculpture every time I pass it! I look forward to seeing you next year at SCI and cannot wait to see your future figurative pieces!
Thank you so much!'
