The Flood

Acrylic painting on board | 30 x 24 | 2020

The world places little, if any, value on the roles of caregiving and teaching. I want to elevate and celebrate the nurturers by presenting this wonderful cat mother, who meets our gaze with sacred dignity as she manages to nurse and care for a host of figures who busily swarm her. It takes furious amounts of emotional and physical strength just to keep up with the frenzy. She is both a sanctuary and a force to be reckoned with. She stands in a sacred place (architecture inspired by the Great Mosque in Cordova, Spain)

I called it The Flood to reference the moment a mother’s milk comes in, and flows into baby’s mouth. I also want to tie in the spiritual symbol of water and floods as they can represent cleansing, renewal, and atonement.
