I finished a new commission for my friend, Cristy. Here are pictures of the artwork, a portrait of her and her daughter, Ziggy, as they are nursing. I find the breastfeeding relationship between a mother and her baby to be a strong and sweet bond, and it’s a pity something so instinctual has become charged with so much social drama. Breastfeeding is beautiful. And disarming. And strengthening. And I love it.
