Star Mother and Child, Original

Star Mother and Child, Original. One of the paintings in my White Star Magnolia series. Acrylic paints on canvas.

For a very long time, I've admired the profile picture of one of my friends. I love the position the photographer captured of my friend and her child. This painting, Star Mother and Child, was inspired by my friend's photo. While my mother and child purposely don't resemble my friend and her child - in features or coloring - the way I positioned them in the frame is very much like my friend's picture.

What I love about the positioning is the way the mother and child form a heart shape as they come together.

As a mother myself, I also love the tender, motherly expression on my friend's face, an expression I hope to have captured here.

I added a wreath of White Star Magnolias around my Star Mother and Child because I've been particularly enamored with these tree blossoms this spring. Here's why:

One bright day in April, something out my living room window caught my eye. Across the street, my neighbor's beautiful White Star Magnolia tree was in full bloom, sparkling in the sun like a treasure box full of diamonds and pearls. I grabbed my camera and hurried over to get a closer look at the floral beauty. After my generous neighbor told me to be her guest, I began clicking away.

The blossoms were wild, yet pure, beautiful individually, yet came together as a finely rehearsed company of dancers in a glorious choreography on their tree. The images of those blossoms that I captured that afternoon, inspired a series of my paintings and digital art. Included in this collection are my Mother's Day 2021 piece, "Strong. Loving. Beautiful."; "White Star Reaching for the Moon"; and "White Star Reaching for the Sun."

I added the White Star Magnolia to this mother and child painting because the dance of the beautiful blossoms on the tree shares a poetry with the careful dance of the mother as she lovingly raises her child. These white tree blossoms have become a symbol of strength, love and beauty for me.

Mother and Child in the Garden, print of an original acrylic color painting on canvas.

The painting is part of my Mother and Child series. After 2020, a year of deep racial unrest and division in the U.S., it was important to me that I include a loving Black mother and child in my series.

I started the series in early 2021 when I was really looking forward to Mother's Day. I was thrilled for all the mothers, grandmothers, and families in our country because many adults had been newly vaccinated against Covid. It meant we could gather together in person, and in some cases even hug for the first time in over a year. This was true for my own family over the Mother's Day 2021 holiday weekend.

For this series of paintings, my goal was to depict diverse, engaging, pairings of mothers with their children. I, myself, am a mother of three and have darker skin than all three of my children. My own mother was born in Malaysia and her skin is darker than my children's, my nephews' and mine. My father is Caucasian American and has much lighter skin than mine. When I was young, I saw very little artwork celebrating loving, diverse families. I make a point of representing diversity in my own art to normalize diversity for my own children.
