A Mother's Kiss
India Ink (Airbrush and Brushwork) on Arches Paper, Size 18 - 1/8" x 25 - 1/4" By Eric Buechel 2017
In this latest ink drawing, I see an attempt to capture the essence of motherhood from the beginning point of it's beautiful journey. In this drawing, a young mother is shown tenderly kissing her young child. Although surrounded by less than ideal conditions, this mother has dreams and aspirations for her child to reach beyond the confines of his or her circumstances. This young woman could be anyone as every mother has these same dreams and aspirations for her child. A young mother viewing this could certainly relate as she is currently in this phase of her motherhood journey. And an older mother, like myself, can look back and remember the very dreams she held on to so tightly for her child. Though circumstances may change and the dream may have taken a different direction, the same desires and depth of affection are found with mothers of all ages. I hope you enjoy my husband's latest work titled "A Mother's Kiss".

Mother, During those early, dearest days I did not dream that you had A large life which included me, For I had a life Which was only you. Time passed steadily and drew us apart. I was unwilling. I feared if I let you go You would leave me eternally....(Continue)
