It has been awhile since I picked up a paintbrush. I have missed a few Daily Paintworks Challenges. You could say I am trying to get back in the saddle with this one. The challenge was to crop and capture an animal, the focus being on the eyes or expression for the painting. I chose this photo taken by my daughter, Kara. She captured this Mother and baby snuggling on a farm in Ireland. The reason I have been to busy to paint, the addition of my first Grandchildren, twin boys. This photo really spoke to me. In a few weeks, Kara will also welcome a new addition to our family. Love those baby faces!
