Painting a Day 126

Busy weekends are a hallmark of our family.  Hence the late posting of yesterday's and today's paintings.  Yesterday's was inspired by watching "Babies", the documentary.  It was a very cute film.  Lots of insights into cultures other than our own and their child rearing practices.  My only critiques, comes from not quite knowing the intention of the film-maker.  It appears that they are trying to give a representative picture of babyhood around the world.  And yet the bias of the western film-maker comes through.  Out of four babies they featured, only two had siblings and them only one each.  And in none of the families was there any portrayal of a faith life.  The closest they came to that was the family from San Francisco and their singing about the "earth-mother", hardly representative of American culture.

Today's painting was simple inspired by the hope of coming spring.
