Art of the Day: Friday May 06, 2005

"Bliss"

- by Barbara Lovell Napoli

This week's theme: Mothers

This Sunday is Mother's Day.

Art Of The Day did a Mother's Day Theme last year but it is one of things that bears repeating.

So, as was said last year...

A mother does so much and means so much that one day hardly seems enough.

Happy Mother's Week.

-Melissa Morton


Art: Bliss by Artist Barbara Lovell Napoli
This piece began as a pencil study for a painting and ended up a very detailed drawing of mother and infant in that peaceful moment when baby's breathing slows down to the rythym of the heart beating beneath his tiny head... I don't know who experiences more bliss at that moment, but I am convinced that if I didn't have the opportunity to spend so much time painting and drawing babies- I'd have a lot more myself!!! Having said that, the minute pencil work in this piece took me about sixteen hours to complete!
