I am very intrigued by classical motives. They are easily recognisable and therefore allow for a lot of freedom because you already know what you are looking at. An image of something well known doesn't need much explanation. That painterly freedom is something very inspiring to me. So today I thought I'd go with the Madonna and the Child. Twice!
The first one is called "Black Forest Madonna" ("Muttergottes Schwarzwälder Kirsch").
The second one is simply called Mother and Child.
