Your beauty on my eyes like a masterpiece
Never has skin tasted so sweet.

We were face to face and lips to lips and cheek to cheek
And you said, 'oh, I didn't know we could go so many kisses deep'

With no lodestar in sight.

Take off your things and listen
The darkness rings'

It is a great task youve completed here. The world needed this kind of art. Real, emotional and filled with natural child birth. Too many women think of hospitals, cesarion and epidural when thinking of childbirth. This is how you do it. IN water. Outdoors. With a midwife. Antyhing, as long as it is natural. You provided it. Wow!

Truly beautiful. Thank you for such a wonderful work picturing the true sense of giving birth. Greetings from Ecuador.

Melinda Nichols said...

I can't stop looking at your incredible work. You are a gift to women, to the truth of the birthing process and definitely to me in this moment. As soon as your etsy site is back up I can't wait to purchase one of your beauties (the greeting cards look AWESOME!)

Hospital births can be natural too. You can birth in many ways.

Your paintings are so strong, its even tearing to look at them and that's a good thing. So proud to see a painting of yours that really is from great emotional empathy. As a professional artist, I just finished my first childbirth painting at 75 years old! Fantastic. If you want to add mine to your Birthing collection, you may.
