a breastfeeding blog for the modern mama
One of my favorite parts of this painting are the mother's rolls. It makes it so much more realistic than most reproduced images you see of new moms. The baby is obviously very very young, meaning that it wasn't all that long ago that he was housed inside his mother's body. Her torso is not going to be perfectly slim and trim. Extra skin, the pregnant donut, what ever you want to call it. I just really love and appreciate that the artist took that into account to make this truly beautiful image even more so by making it ok to not be perfect. Thank you for sharing!
