To a Mother-to-be in Every Woman

Tanya Yermak's avatar Tanya Yermak

The 21st century evolution of every mankind driven area of civilization did not yet shade out the most basic need of a human being - to mating for the sake of parenting. There aren't more treasured moments for a couple than a state of pregnancy. There aren't more private and mystic acts than those happening between the two intimately. - This and more were realized in a painting that changed my life. At the age of 31, having stopped a successful business career in New York City, I returned to my home country to start all over again but as an artist. The artist of word, thought, color - anything, as long as it's a result of my inner self motives. Doable. But then a desire to settle down in a family and give birth to a child overpowered everything else. The theme of the painting came out straight on canvas, with no sketching underneath. Half a year later I met a man who made it all possible. To a Mother-to-be in Every Woman, all I can wish now, a happy wife and a mother 5 years later.
