A helping hand...

In the studio this week I have had the joy of helping create
a "surprise" Mother's Day gift for a friend...

I textured, painted, & glazed a stretched canvas...
then snuck in the precious subjects,
placed their hands on the canvas forming a heart shape,

(I just LOVE anything with a child's handprint!!! )

after a final glaze and sealing,
it's ready to surprise their sweet mom!

after all:

"A child is really a mother's heart walking around outside herself."

So True!!! isn't it?
Many Blessings!


  1. Precious! And what a sweet quote! So true... Lori

    Thanks for the idea!!

  3. Jill, I LOVE this!! I want it!! Wish it was my sweet babies - it can be if you want to call Jason and tell him what to buy and when to bring my babies by :) What a PRECIOUS GIFT!! PERFECT!!! I Totally Want One!!!

  6. Oh I love this idea...I bought a canvas a few weeks ago from Target and it is just sitting around...I am going to have to make my own Mother's Day gift to me...
