Four New Mothers Day Paintings

Last year, I put out a call for submissions and received dozens of heart warming snapshots, expressing moments of motherhood. One year later, these paintings are now complete just in time to share with you for Mother’s Day!

Art print preorders are available in my shop, and will take 2-4 weeks to arrive. Order your art print by midnight on 5/8/2019 and I’ll slip a surprise into your package as a thank you!

Here are the photo submissions, followed by the paintings I turned them into…

Send me your photo & I might use it for my next series!

I will make a new series of original paintings for Mother’s Day next year. Would you like me to use your photo as inspiration? Email up to three (3) photos to hello@darlingillustrations.com with “Mother’s Day submission” in the subject.

GUIDELINES:

I am interested in candid scenes of mothers living life with their families. I prefer a scene, like baking or tinkering, over posed shots…I want the images to tell a story. I prefer scenes that are zoomed out to show all/most of the subjects’ bodies. I have a particular love for representing LGBTQ families, blended families, and families with disabilities or who have overcome a hardship of some kind.

While I am sure there are many great images of mothers and fathers together, I am specifically looking for separate scenes of motherood. I will do a new call for submissions next month for Father’s Day.

By submitting your photos to me, you are giving me permission to use and alter them however I see fit. I may use your photos in my promotion, on my site or social media or elsewhere.

Good luck!
