Illusive Artworks

Surreal Acrylic Artwork - “Motherhood” - Fine Art Prints



This piece is inspired by my beautiful son, and the complex experience of motherhood. It is full of contrast with lots of dark tones as there is so much about parenting that is challenging, confusing and sometimes upsetting. But at the core of it it is beautiful. It is warmth and roses and gold tones wrapped in a heavy knit blanket. 

As a mom, I find there is so much love and comfort to be found in quiet moments. They don’t make the challenging moments any less real, but they do seem less important (or faded into the background like the dark roses behind this mother and son). 

All in all the piece is a reflection on the good and bad of being a mom, and the incredible reward of doing your best by your little one.
