Momma's Boy, Foal, Animal Art by Fawn

"Momma's Boy"
15 x 21 inches
Watercolor

This is a painting I did back in 1998! I just came across it, and wanted to show it off. I was just beginning to use watercolors and acrylics after years of painting with oils and teaching classes in oils. I felt like I had really come a long way after I finished this one. It took me weeks! I painted every hair. . . click on the image to see the detail.
I was thinking about my boys, while I worked on this. We were abandoned by their Dad. They were around ten and twelve years old. I wanted to protect them and take away the hurt, I was helpless. And yet I know we only learn by experiencing the tough things. God loves us with such an intelligent love, turning the hard things around for good. This Bible verse really spoke to me:

"Can a woman forget her suckling child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you." Isaiah 49:15
