Wow, this is so beautiful! Reminds me of my daughter and her first child, and it really calls to me. I love the way the birches echo her white fur cloak, that's something elegant.

This is beautiful. You captured the mother's expression well, and the angle of the baby is just right. Very nice work!

Thank you very much - the pose was inspired by my own memories of my son's first Yule. Though he'll be 10 next April (*twang* goes another grey hair...) I've never forgotten the magic of that first holiday as a new mother. So I suppose it can be said this is a bit of a self portrait. :)

I find that adding love and other emotions tends to bring it out the best in art. It shows, clearly, in your painting. :)

Absolutly wonderful work! The way you captured the love in the mothers face as she stares down at her babe is so fantastic. Soft colors reminds me of coming inside after a snow storm...warm and fuzzy (even though this is pictured outside...oh well)

Gorgeous - so tender and warm (even though it's a winter picture!) I just can't get over how detailed her headdress is!

It's hard to see from so small a resolution, but her head wreath is a mix of holly, evergreen, and hawthorn. Some might argue that the Hawthorn is associated with summer (in the Celtic tree months, the "Hawthorn moon" is from May 13th to June 9th). But in winter the Hawthorn's berries are welcome food for many birds at a time when other berry plants have gone dormant. It just seemed fitting for her - a mother goddess and life bringer in cold winter days. :)

Thank you! Based on the positive responses I've received, I plan to do a series of prints based on the solstices and equinoxes. Between that, the tarot deck I have in the works and my regular commission work, I should be pretty well holed up for the rest of winter now! LOL
