~ Immunity ~

The title for this painting refers to not only the gift of healing immunity from mother to child through her nourishing breast milk ~ but Social Immunity for the mother: self-assurance against the breastfeeding Nay Sayers ~ confidence against those who are confused about the purpose of breasts.

Thus ~ even though I love the eye contact of a breastfeeding couple ~

I stand content with her confident eye contact with the viewer…

I recently learned about necklaces specially created for babies to play with while nursing, and from the beginning, I knew I wanted to feature one in this painting.

Have a wonderful day.
Love & Sincerely,
