Walking the baby

                                                12"x16" Oil on linen panel

I was tempted to call this painting "Madonna with child", but decided it would not be accurate or nice, so I called it what it was, after a mother out walking with her child.  The old house behind her had a section removed and looked a little lopsided, but it was a beautiful morning and I was eager to paint.  She was a nice young lady who was not disturbed by my including her in the scene.  If I remember correctly, I was painting with my old friend, George Gibson, that morning.  Always pleasant.    Mike
