While scrolling my Facebook newsfeed a couple weeks ago I saw a posting by a fellow mama on a breastfeeding support group. She was sharing her finished work of a beautiful painting she had done, inspired by her breastfeeding journey with her son. I fell instantly in love. I have always had a love of mermaids and took THIS photo while on our family vacation this past summer with the title “Mermommy nursing her merbaby”.
My love of this photo inspired me to decide that when Lucy got her own room when we moved, it would have a mermaid theme. And this painting on FB was PERFECT. So, I hunted down her etsy business, ordered a print and received my own. And it is GORGEOUS. Perfect.
It is handpainted, with thousands of tiny dots of paint making up all of the mesmerizing details. This is a process called pointillism and takes an eye for detail and a whole lot of talent.
The first 50 people who buy a print of this gorgeous painting pay the special low price of only $14.95! Price goes up after that so order yours today! This would make a wonderful gift for a mother to be! It is FAR more beautiful in person. My photography skills do not do it justice. She even included stretch marks on the Mermaid Mom. ❤
You can find her Etsy business here to place an order and see her other works.
She also has a FaceBook page and she currently has a truly stunning piece of art posted while she is in the process of painting it. This one is of a babywearing mama. Babywearing, along with breastfeeding, are two things I hold dear to my heart. She has already added some gorgeous details and color to it and I can’t wait to see the finished product!
