I conceive of you
not in my womb
but in my mind.

You are a whisper
an image behind my eyes.
a thought
held in my hands
a precious hope
in the centre of my heart.


Acrylic on watercolour paper, lots of excitement, obsessiveness, and a severe lack of sleep.

20 hours work? maybe? I never count.

detail two

detail three

Concieve Of You by ~apricotmuffins The suggester says, "Only the concept and the artist's drawing skills are enough to leave you in awe in front of this painting. The details are outstanding, you almost can't believe this is hand-made! The conceived child, either a human or an idea, seems like the center of this image, enlightening it. Yet, it needs the mother's hands to be alive and to keep on brighten her. The one needs and gives life to the other. A tender, beautiful portrait that deserves to be more known."

This makes me think. It's like a lot of my characters are my children. Brilliant work!

This is old I know, but I just had to say how beautiful I find this. I'm in awe at your painting skills, and the concept for the piece is wonderful. I hope you did well in the competition.
Where is the little bit of poetry in the artists comments from? Or did you write it yourself?
