Semi abstract oil painting of a mother and children, title Belonging

Oil on Linen, 90cm x 90cm

I observed this intimate scene while waiting for a train in a busy station and I imagined the mother waiting for the return of her husband after a long absence. I really wanted to capture the mix of expectancy and longing in the moment and explore the protection and reassurance of motherhood.

This concept had to go through many revisions before I felt it communicated in the right way and while doing so allowed me to try slightly different compositions to best convey a harmonious union.
