  1. As a new father, this really resonates with me. It’s so lovely. And, if my interpretation is right, there are undertones of “it’s the middle of the night, and I may be exhausted, but I love this child so much that I’ll do anything for them.”

  2. I’ve seen a lot of art on here, but none has had the same impact on me as this. As a mother, I can empathize with all of her feelings.

    Congratulations on your achievement.

  3. I’m completely enamored with this. How true the halos are in recontextualizing “Virgin Mary and Jesus”… It reminds me of Artemisia Gentileschi and the way she used the same technique and background to create true and truthful reactions and feelings in her paintings as the men painters do to create idolized and ideal women. This is simply lovely.

  4. You’ve really nailed it with this one. It’s something I’m very familiar with as a mother. Bravo, you’ve created something profoundly personal, intangible, and sublime.
