My Children Sleeping. Oil on wood, 20cm x 30cm.

Aaaaah it’s that time of day again, when it’s all quiet apart from the sounds of sleeping children. The golden hour. It is both exciting to be a parent and to be a painter, life generally becomes more complicated but richer at the same time and if you mix the two together it becomes creatively rewarding when time is on you side!

  1. I totally agree, I have a 10 year old and a 5 year old and I to look forward to my painting time when they are asleep. They look so precious, the painting looks so soft and tranquil, peaceful. I looks beautiful!

  2. I just love this Anna! (I think I say that about all your paintings Anna!) But I really do. There is such a wonderful sense of light in this, and oh how you have captured a moment in time. Its terrific. I feel the same way about being a parent and artist, and love when I have the opportunity to combine the two. When my son was an infant I did a series of conte stick drawings of him sleeping. It was such a wonderful time.
    Thanks for sharing this! ~Rita

    1. Thank you Rita for being so supportive! I can imagine your drawings of you son are beautiful like all your other paintings. I agree we paint so we dont forget, and these sort of moments are the most precious!
