Baby Story: “Kristen”

One by one, I am creating 20×20 “celebration oils” featuring the birth story of each of my four children.  This one is about Kristen, my oldest daughter, who recently announced she will soon be a mother herself.  Each of these paintings includes the type-written birth story — a re-telling of the circumstances and happenings surrounding the birth event.  If you look closely, you’ll see bits and pieces of the story in the background of the painting.
