A baby wrapped in a winter scene.
Shining Child: Meira
This painting is a portrait of a sweet three month old child. Though the baby's face is the focus of the piece, the flowing lines surrounding her are extremely significant. The surrounding lines are an abstract of the mother, both full like she was when the baby was inside, and full as she must be to care for the new child who has entered the world. The mother is both holding the baby and letting her be in a space of her own.
Shining Child is inspired by a little girl named Meira. Her name literally means "Shiny".
