A Mother's Love
15" x 9", $350
In this painting, I wanted to explore the powerful bond between a mother killdeer and her young. The mother watches over her chicks vigilantly from the moment that the eggs are first laid. She will even place herself in harm's way when confronted by predators, faking a broken wing to draw the attack away from the nest. After the chicks have hatched, their mother will continue to protect them until they are ready to be independent, teaching them everything they need to know for survival.
