Message from the Artist: In a colorful world of warmth, we witness the nurturing and acceptance of a mother who looks out for every child. We can all feel tenderness for any child, as though they were our own. Keeping our eyes open, dissolving separation. She is a mother to any who need the peace that she provides. She is asking nothing in return (except kindness).

My boys and I have raised three rats, the first one, Polly, was our extra-special friend. She used to sit in the front pocket of my sweatshirt while I worked on my computer, and once chewed a hole through a little chocolate stain. We loved her til the moment she took her last breath. I watched her pass from this world to the next, afraid to touch her. When I was a girl, I raised 5 rats ~ one at a time. I don’t have many memories of them except giving Ash a birthday party and naming one Scout after Bruce Willis’ child. They rode around on my shoulder and dropped little poop bombs. I’m sure my mom loved them as much as I did.

This original painting is 11x11 inches on 12x12 inch heavy watercolor paper ~ this is the actual original paint on heavy (140 lb) acid-free paper, loved on by the artist's hands, layer after layer of paint and love. A one-of-a-kind piece, NOT a reproduction or a print. The full front surface is varnished with UV Protectant varnish. The painting is signed, dated and named on the back, in pencil.
