The First Nest is mama’s body, inside and out, day into night. Whether it is her womb, her breast, her skin & hair ~ Mother provides the very First Nest for a precious new love to revel in safety.

I have been working on this piece for weeks. She waited patiently for me to finish The Healing You Can Do, my new book ~ which headed off to the printer last week.

Losing myself in the skin, hair and details of this painting ~ thinking about the warmth and safety of a mother, was a nice celebration of a BIG job complete (the book!). Here I share with you: First Nest.

She is an original painting on deep 14×18 inch canvas.

She has not pre-sold and is currently available for $705 USD with free shipping globally.

Please email me back if you are interested in adding her to your collection OR STARTING your original art collection!!

It’s not too late to give a gift of Motherhood Moments! In case you’ve been waffling or are worried about shipping times, there is a simple solution: A gift certificate that you can print at home and give, OR, have emailed directly to one of the mamas in your life.

Here’s How It Works:

3) choose EMAIL (no time for me to mail!)

4) enter YOUR email address as the recipient if you’d like to print and wrap the Gift Certificate for giving in person
