ABOUT THE ART

Mother's Day, Mother and Child, Victorian, Portrait Painting, Baby illustration

The Hidden Mother refers to a type of Victorian photo where the mom "stays" in the picture to calm the little child via bad camouflage. I just love these things...they are so creepy.

This little ode to the Hidden Mother was created with watercolor and gouache paints over a graphite drawing.
