Mother's Love
by Gladys Roldan-de-Moras
Oil 16 x 8

Entered in: November 2009

Judge's Comments: Intimate moment. This is a gorgeous small painting; such a beautiful moment between a mother and her baby. This is a subject that can be hard to portray, but this artist couldnít have done a better job. Straight forward design with strong diagonals and simplified bold impasto brushwork. I love the luminous darker forms against the lighter background. The motherís face is beautifully painted, using radiant shadows and soft simple forms, and is not overworked at all. Beautiful with great use of color variances throughout the painting. - Bryce Cameron Liston
