commission: you are already home

This was a really enjoyable yet challenging piece.  It was challenging because the objective of this work was to capture the deep compelling feelings of love involved in having a family and the joys of parenthood.  I have never been a parent of a human child, so my concept can’t come from my own first-hand experiences.  Instead, I drew from my observations of the love shared between my good friends and their children, as well as the close relationship I have with my own parents.  This work is also special because it is intended to be auctioned off as a fundraiser for Because of Isaac, an organization that provides assistance to other loving families attempting to adopt.
