Embrace Your Child

'Embrace Your Child'
Pitt Pen on Watercolour Paper

I haven't produced any art from scratch this year (though I've made lots of cards from scrapbooking materials).  Until now.

I wanted to draw my inner child as a therapy exercise.  After some doodling, I came up with this.  It represents the child in me reaching up for the adult in me, who is bending over to embrace the child.  

I really like the image - two parts of myself, coming together with great love.  

I like the image for how I feel in real life about my friend's children as well.  I want to bend over and scoop them up in my arms with love.  Perhaps it could represent how you feel about your children?

Here it is with a little purple and starry background.

And here it is framed.

I feel gooey with love just looking at it!
