Illustration Friday ~ WRAPPED


For this week's Illustration Friday prompt, my very first thought was that of being WRAPPED up safely in someone's arms. And whose arms are safer than Mom's? My boys are growing up, too quickly for me, and only one still cuddles with me on a regular basis. And I know that those days are numbered. It will be among the things I miss most.

Collage available in my Etsy shop.

Oh, boy, can I relate! I just had to pick out senior portraits for my son. I cried like I was walking him to Kindergarten on the first day again. I can't believe we're here. But I digress, really wanted to tell you I love this piece and it speaks to any mom's heart. Lovely work!
