There is such beauty in this painting. I love the lively colors, but I especially savor the sense of warmth in the painting. The loving mother has her arms protectively around her snuggled-up daughter, and the daughter is smiling safely in her snug cocoon, unperturbed by the scary parts of the fairy tale. The light shade is illuminating them softly from within as the sun is setting from without. Yevgeniy has suspended this beautiful moment between mother and daughter, capturing the meaning of motherhood with every aspect of this delightful painting.
Happy Mother’s Day to those who are celebrating!
