Artists throughout the centuries have captured in paint, mothers with their children, those tender times of warmth and love. Fathers, on the other hand, were hardly ever depicted
in paintings. They were the providers and worked long hours, hardly involved in the day-to-day demands of raising a child. In this day and age, fathers now have a very active part in raising their children. You see them in every aspect tenderly and lovingly caring for their little ones.
Here are two paintings that I have done that attempt to capture tender moments in a Father’s arms.
