Murmurings On Mom And Baby

Is it mother and baby or midwife in baby in this logo? I wonder, and yet the mother in me says it is mother. My child is 22, last month, graduated from college and headed off to live on her own, but staying with us for the summer. What a long journey from that moment of adoration, connection, dependency. The rest of the journey is spent breaking away, growing yes, but breaking away. This commission comes at an appropriate time and I fine myself reminiscing and thinking about many different things. What this logo depicts is an incredible moment, unlike any other. I remember the world could have disappeared. It might have even done so as I sat in the hospital 22 years ago. I want to stop working on this and then create a simplified version, now that I have found the passion and the connection, the movement I just can’t stop working on this sculpture.
