Message from the Artist: I never took official breastfeeding photos when my boys were babes. But one day I had my hubby snap a shot of me nursing my first son when he was 4 months old. Then I drew it... naming it Nourished By The Moment. I hadn’t realized until I was a mother how a simple action, a single moment could nourish my own soul, as well as the body of my child. 15 years later I’ve just finished a painting inspired by the drawing. I searched for the 2004 photo a couple days ago because I needed a reference for the baby’s face. I couldn’t find it. Then a collector spontaneously messaged me a photo that helped a lot! Thanks Whitney! Today I finished the painting, and I gave her the same name: Nourished By The Moment… and today, I found the photo from 2004 ❤
Breastfeeding photo sessions were not common (at least in my consciousness), 15 years ago, so I am so thankful for the few photos I have of me feeding my boys. I knew the photo needed to be drawn in 2004, and I knew the drawing needed to be painted in 2019. And I’m nourished, even to this day, by the quiet sleepy moments I had with my baby boys.

Paper Prints are created on smooth, heavy, matte (not shiny) paper. Archival means they are acid-free and will last a lifetime. Paper prints are autographed and packaged in an acid-free sleeve. Prints up to 12x12 inches include an acid-free board for safe arrival in a stiff mailer. 13x19 inch prints are sleeved, rolled and shipped in a heavy-duty tube. If your order includes a 13x19 inch print, additional prints will also be rolled.
Choose THIN or THICK margins on your paper print (see image above) ~ thick margins act as a “mat” or “spacer” when your print is framed. Thin margins allow for a larger printed image and can be framed with or without a mat.
Stretched Canvas Prints are on high quality cotton for amazing sharpness and quality. Stretched Canvas Prints have 1.5-inch edges printed in a rich dark color (NO white margins). Stretched Canvas Prints are the closest option you can get to an original painting.
Stretched Canvas Prints are wrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. They arrive with a hanging wire on the back. No framing necessary.
Please allow 4-6 days for your Stretched Canvas Print to be carefully created before shipping. See Stretched Canvas Print Samples
