Oil on wrapped canvas
24" x 24" 
When Rosa was seven months pregnant she asked me to paint a portrait of her vessel.  She put on my antique kimono and formed a heart around her belly button.  It was exactly the look I was going for.

I enjoyed painting the sheen and shadows on the satin.  And when it was dry enough, I put in the flowers and pagodas.  There was even a moment of occupational confusion as I did her nails. 

Sorry, this one's not for sale.

Thank you for visiting.
