Painting no. 8 in my painting-a-day challenge for the month of March. watercolor on 5” x 7'“ paper.
This powerful moment has been experienced by so many mothers, and hoped for by so many more. I experienced the healing of a rainbow birth not by c-section, but the moment still felt this way to me. This baby throws his arms wide as the air hits his face. His mouth is about to open wide in a gasp. This is where the mother finally feels relief from fear and worry; it gives way to glorious rejoicing.
