The relationship between a mother and her newborn baby is a special one, to be sure.
She’s just carried that baby for nine months, feeling the kicks and scrapes of the little body inside her own body and now they’re meeting face-to-face for the first time. A Utah artist, J. Kirk Richards, has just finished a massive artistic endeavor to honor motherhood and that special bond. He’s created fourteen paintings as a part of what he calls a Mother And Child project.
Usually Richards creates a work of art and frames it when it’s finished. This time the artist purchased fourteen ornate, ready-made frames and let each frame inspire the painting. Fourteen beautiful Mother and Child paintings
You can vote on one image to turn into a Mother’s Day card and a fine art print. The prints and cards will be available through the months of April and May.
Fifty percent of all proceeds from the sale of prints and cards will go to benefit children whose parents have cancer, at Camp Kesem.
