Waiting for Daddy

This is one of the pieces I am showing at the National Military Spouse Network's First Annual Small Works Show. The show will be October 19th at the Mary Gates Learning Center in Old Town Alexandria. The show features works of art by Military Spouses. I love that the mother in the picture seems to be looking for something and the child is looking at the viewer. My story...in my head...is that she is waiting for her husband to arrive home to meet his child. The little one is, of course, oblivious to the whole situation but is distracted by something in the distance. It was a fun piece to do. And fun to imagine a joyous reunion.
My blog will be silent for a while. I am off to Switzerland with some fabulous art friends for 10 fabulous days. My husband will have to fend for himself!
So Bon Voyage to me!!!
