Mother and Child



When God thought of Mother
he must have laughed with satisfaction and framed it quickly....
so rich, so deep, so divine
so full of soul, power and beauty
was the conception.                  
                                  -----     Henry Ward Beecher

I used an very old image of Madonna and Child here and played with the erase and fresco filters in Photoshop Elements 13 until I got a more modern sketchy look.  Background from itkupilli.  This entry is for both TAW challenge and Digital Whisper challenge to celebrate "Mother`s Day".
