Inchie Monday 01/17/11

I have always loved the art of Mary Cassatt - she captured the nurturing love and caring of mother and child in many of her paintings.  This is "Mother and Child 1897" - I added a background paper and light blue lace - then the image and the word "Caring".  It's unfortunate that my scanner causes a blurriness that does not appear on the original.

Oh Jackie, I LOVE this image! And the blue and lace just soften it so beautifully. Well done! :-)
