More paintings of Motherly Love (or grandmotherly)

This painting has been good luck to those who own it. I'll explain. 

Version 2 of Maternal Kiss was larger at 12 x 16.

 Liane, loved this painting but the original was already sold.
The first version on Maternal Kiss is 8 x 10.
So, she asked me to paint another version in a different size that would fit in just the right spot in her living room. The colors and composition are a bit different from the original painting "Maternal Kiss" but the essence and emotion are the same. When Liane came to pick up the finished painting she said that it was even more special because she just found out that she was going to be a grandmother for the first time. She was thrilled and so was I.
   The next day, I got a call from the woman who purchase the original version. "Can you keep a secret?" she said. "I just have to tell someone,  I just found out that I am going to be a grandmother".
    Isn't that an amazing coincidence?  Two different women from different parts of the country purchased this painting and both learned they were going to become grandmothers.
     In honor of those future grandmothers I am posting some of my more popular African mother and child paintings. I can't guarantee you will get good news too but I can promise you that you will be helping a child in need if you purchase a print. (Proceeds from each print sale go to Future Leaders Underprivileged Children's Center in Ghana, which strives to provide a free education to children who otherwise could not go to school.)
