In My Heart (sold)
In My Heart, #13 of 85 8x8s, ©2009. KmBerggren ~ Message from the Artist: I like the idea of the mother cupping the child's head as though she could be cupping her own breast, as a part of herself. Many have heard the quote: "Making the decision to have a child is momentous... It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around the outside of your body" Elizabeth Stone I never quite got this until I had children, and until those children became old enough to seek and find danger and adventure (anyone for sitting on a stack of 5-high couch cusions, teetering on the couch?). Now that I understand the meaning, and now that I know my boys, I really love the quote (although it pains me at the same time!).
