My third “pregnant painting,” ‘Introspection,’ sums up my emotional state at the time: protective, internal, and peaceful.

See the final work here. The original is available, plus paper and canvas prints of your size choice.
What does this painting say to you? I’m looking for keywords about how she makes you feel, what images come to your mind, and what associations, so please comment below…
