'Couple Expecting'

I've been imagining the love of a loving couple expecting a child and starting a family unit, and how precious that must be.   

I was doodling with my pastels and drew this:

I was drawn to the image so I then painted it on canvas.  I drew the woman's breast and baby bump first, then surrounded by her loving arms, hugged by her partner's arms, then finished with their tilted caring heads.  Looking at it, I can really feel the emotions of love and deep care in their embrace.
