Motherhood

Eleonora Hayes's avatar Eleonora Hayes

I am trying to show through the process of painting how having children impacts our decisions. My Artprize entry started as a painting of wild flowers, but my kids thought it is not interesting enough for Artprize, so I painted their favorite animals and things. Then I tried to balance both paintings, as I painted I named it Motherhood. Motherhood can get crazy, but children are a mother's everything. Their constant changing hobbies, talents and interests manifest into the world I see everyday.
