X Miracle Love   ... Sold


My niece, Merete, and her beautiful little girl, Sophie, who brings such joy and happiness to her loved ones.. a miracle indeed!

This gift to Sophie on her one year birthday is a family project indeed.   The motif I used, was taken at Sophie's baptism by my brother, Thomas Ibsen.  When I saw it I was so inspired that I painted this image in less that a week.  I love the interaction between mother and child, their contact and mutually adoring glances, the little hand reaching up towards her mother, all swathed in crocheted lace and pale layers of cloth.  

Happy birthday, little one!   We can't wait to watch you grow.
