Momma, Help Me! -sold!

"Momma, Help Me!" watercolor (9" x 6")

There is something about umbrellas, rain, and a special relationship that I so enjoy trying to capture with the paints and paper. In this sweet challenge, where a mother and her little one are braving the can just imagine what this momma is going through...trying to find the balance of letting her child struggle and figure it out cause he/she "can do it" (need to foster that independence), being patient and loosing the concept "it would be just easier and quicker if I do it myself"....and then the instant response of mothering when you hear "Momma, help me!" All the while trying to stay dry yourself and not think about how soaked your baby is getting. Ahhh...the joys of motherhood.
