  1. All your drawings convey emotions, dear Elena. Very beautiful and this sketch.
    Thank you so much for sharing with us.
    Have a wonderful weekend, dear Elena. Big hugs, Stefania. 🙂

  2. I read the dependency of male on female – male child upon mother. I love that it captures a moment, a conventional pose, a stereotypical gender role. But I can see that the mother faces the viewer with a calm honesty, whereas the little boy’s attention has wandered elsewhere; that is a brilliant effect, given the deliberately imprecise technique of the painting.

    I would like, at some future date, to uplift three or four of these pictures for a Showcase at ‘the zen space’, as I think their ‘in-the-moment’ quality would compliment the poetry perfectly. May I have your permission?


    1. Thank you so much! This took about twenty minutes. It’s a little larger than the others at about 16″ x 20″. Yes, I do sell work. Anything you see on this post can be ordered in print form through Blue Canvas if it’s requested. Originals are also available, but pricing and framing becomes more complicated. Thanks you for asking:)

  3. A lovely armful of barely contained wriggliness ! Such a wistful expression on little ones face .. not quite ready to leave the moment behind 😉
    I don’t want this Descent Series to end Elena !

  4. Love it Elena – these beautiful pieces take me back to a quieter time. I love the ease and softness you’ve created in each of the characters. Wonderful color combinations.

  5. A beautifully rendered moment. All a little weary from a busy day, perhaps?
    I hope you exhibit this series, Elena, it will be an exceptional exhibit. A magical time travel experience.
