Do my kids have to be wrapped in curtains when we adventure?!

Rowena said...

Oh! How lovely. That's just how I imagine I will look with my two kids in a couple years.

Uhm, sorta.

Courageous. I love this picture. She looks like she has so much courage leading her girls. To Where?

Prue said...

Lynne, thanks for the tip on the bedsheets. That's why I keep coming back. ; )

what a inigmatic, but amazing piece. this really shows how powerful women are, especially those who have other lives to mentor to. thanks for sharing it!

as a girl, i used to imagine i was the one in picture books. i'm certain that the game is still ok to play when you are an adult.... and pretending with fine art lends a certain culturally refined-ness:)

I have to say, the child on the right reminds me of your little girl!!! Well...minus the boots

i'm guessing those aren't her children, though, unless Mary had all her children a la the firstborn.
